Vertebrate gut microbiota are responsible for regulating several beneficial functions, from development of an organism to maintaining energy homeostasis. However, little is known about the impact of chemical exposures on the structure and function of gut microbiota of fishes. To ascertain a link between contaminant exposure and microbial disruption, male and female fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) were aqueously exposed to low concentrations of benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) (concentrations ranged from 0.0226 g/L to 1.3 g/L) as well...
