Recent research from Belgium using an animal model has identified that butyrate directly influences colonocyte oxygen consumption through the beta-oxidation pathway leading to a symbiotic effect in normal gut by maintaining obligate anaerobes rather than facultative anaerobes such as pathogenic Escherichia and Salmonella by limiting the availability of oxygen in the gut, Additionally; gut nitrate is essential for facultative anaerobes, which is formed via nitric oxide synthase 2.
