Objective
1) Evaluate the anti-inflammatory properties of astaxanthin-enriched salmon via rebalancing of human gut microbioment in obese prediabetic human subjects, and test the role of diet-induced guy microbiome alteration on inflammation in germ-free mice.2)Determine the underlying metabolic mechanism by which astaxanthin, as one of the salmon bioactive compounds, exerts the anti-inflammatory role through regulating certain aspects of gut microbiome growth, metabolism, and function in obese prediabetic BCO2/db/db double knockout mice.
