16S rDNA analysis of the intestinal microbes in osteoporotic rats

DNA was extracted from the samples, and the V3–V4 region of the 16S rDNA genes was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with a universal forward primer and a unique barcoded fusion reverse primer (341F, ACTCCTACGGGAGGCAGCAG; 806R, GGACTACHVGGGTWTCTAAT). PCR was performed using the following conditions: 3 min of denaturation at 94°C; 25 cycles of denaturation at 94°C for 45 sec, annealing at 50°C for 60 sec, and elongation at 72°C for 90 sec; and final extension at 72°C for 10 min. The amplicons were purified using AMPure beads (Axygen). Barcoded libraries were generated by emulsion PCR and sequenced in a V5 to V4 reverse direction on a 318 chip using the 400 bp sequencing kit of an Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine (PGM) system, according to the manufacturer’s instructions [16]. The output sequences of each sample were no less than 50,000 pairs corresponding to 25,000 clean targets, and informatics methods (strategies: PE101/PE150/PE250/PE300) were applied. The clean targets were clustered by USEARCH v7.0.1090 as OTUs.
