Figure 2

(a) Lactobacillus quantification in fecal samples by qRT-PCR, relative to 16S rRNA (n = 10 naïve and 11 stressed; representative of 3 independent experiments; two-tailed t-test with Welch’s correction, ***p < 0.001; mean ± s.e.m.). (b) Correlation analysis between Lactobacillus levels and escape behavior (n = 22 pairs, two-tailed Spearman r, **p = 0.01, line of best fit with 95% CI). (c) Correlation analysis between Lactobacillus levels and escape behavior in C57BL/6J (Jax), BALB/cJ (Jax), and C57BL/6N (Taconic), naive and stressed (n = 45 pairs, two-tailed Spearman r, **p = 0.01, line of best fit with 95% CI). (c’) Dashed insert with expanded X-axis for better resolution.
