Effects of cefazolin and laparotomy on gut microbiota. Six- to 8-week-old CD-1 mice were subjected to laparotomy with or without cefazolin. The colon and its contents were harvested 6 days (a) or 19 days (b) after the surgery. The upper panel is a representative image of 16S rRNA PCR products. Results are mean ± S.E.M. (n = 5–7). *P < 0.05 compared with control mice, ^P < 0.05 compared with mice with laparotomy
