Environmental Chemical Diethylhexyl Phthalate Alters Intestinal Microbiota Community Structure and Metabolite Profile in Mice

ABSTRACT: Exposure to environmental chemicals during windows of development is a potentially contributing factor in gut microbiota dysbiosis, and linked to chronic diseases and developmental disorders. We used a community-level model of microbiota metabolism to investigate the effects of diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), a ubiquitous plasticizer implicated in neurodevelopmental disorders, on the composition and metabolite outputs of gut microbiota in young mice. Administration of DEHP by oral gavage increased the abundance of Lachnoclostridum, while decreasing Akkermansia, Odoribacter, and Clostridium sensu stricto. Addition of DEHP to in vitro cultured cecal microbiota increased the abundance of Alistipes, Paenibacillus, and Lachnoclostridium. Untargeted metabolomics showed that DEHP broadly altered the metabolite profile in the culture. Notably, DEHP enhanced the production of p-cresol, while inhibiting butyrate synthesis. Metabolic model-guided correlation analysis indicated that the likely sources of p-cresol are Clostridium species. Our results suggest that DEHP can directly modify the microbiota to affect production of bacterial metabolites linked with neurodevelopmental disorders.
