Abstract Stable isotope probing (SIP) approaches are a suitable tool to identify active organisms in bacterial communities, but adding isotopically labeled substrate can alter both the structure and the functionality of the community. Here, we validated and demonstrated a substrate-independent protein-SIP protocol using isotopically labeled water that captures the entire microbial activity of a community. We found that 18O yielded a higher incorporation rate into peptides and thus comprised a higher sensitivity. We then applied the method to an in vitro model of a human distal gut microbial ecosystem grown in two medium formulations, to evaluate changes in microbial activity between a high-fiber and high-protein diet. We showed that only little changes are seen in the community structure but the functionality varied between the diets. In conclusion, our approach can detect species-specific metabolic activity in complex bacterial communities and more specifically to quantify the amount of amino acid synthesis. Heavy water makes possible to analyze the activity of bacterial communities for which adding an isotopically labeled energy and nutrient sources is not easily feasible.
