ABO blood group related differences in the microbiota diversity. The Shannon Diversity index calculations of the PCR-DGGE profiles obtained with a) universal eubacterial (UNIV) primers, b) Eubacterium rectale – Clostridium coccoides (EREC) primers and c) Clostridium leptum (CLEPT) primers. Columns are averaged ± SD values of the corresponding ABO blood groups. Statistically significant differences BASED on ANOVA tests between ABO blood groups are marked with diagonal bars and with the corresponding p-value.
