Oral Microbiome Characterization in Murine Models


Oral Microbiome Characterization in Murine Models. Abusleme, L., et al. (December 2017). Bio-protocol 7(24): e2655. DOI: 10.21769/BioProtoc.2655.

The oral microbiome has been implicated as a trigger for immune responsiveness in the oral cavity, particularly in the setting of the inflammatory disease periodontitis. The protocol presented here is aimed at characterizing the oral microbiome in murine models at steady state and during perturbations of immunity or physiology. Herein, we describe murine oral microbiome sampling procedures, processing of lo
