Effects of FXR-stimulatory bacteria on intestinal and hepatic expression of FXR target genes. (A-F) mRNA levels in the ileum. (B) mRNA levels in the liver. mRNA levels were normalized to Gapdh mRNA levels via the relative standard curve method. Values are the mean ± SEM, n = 6. Differences from the PBS treatment group were calculated using Student’s t-test (*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01). (PPTX 108 kb)
