Keywords Colorectal cancer; Short chain fatty acids; Racial/ethnic disparities; Butyrate; Microbiota
Core Tip This brief report describes analysis of stool samples from 20 adult participants aged 50 years and above using 16S rRNA pyrosequencing. We found significantly lower short chain fatty acid levels and significantly different microbial profiles in African Americans vs Whites. We also found a significant correlation between the predicted butyrate kinase levels based on 16S rRNA gene abundance and stool levels of butyrate. These results should be useful in future analysis of colorectal cancer incidence and mortality differentials across racial/ethnic groups.
