The effect of ZEA on the intestinal mucosal morphology of the colon in BALB/C mice. A: The colon of the CON group. B: The colon of the ZEA group. C: The area of intestinal cavity. **: P value<0.01.
Effect of ZEA on the intestinal microflora. (A), comparison of OTU. (B), rarefaction curves based on the observed species values. (C), relative abundance of different bacterial phylum. (D), relative abundance of different bacterial genus.
Changes in the immune gene expression in the colonic mucosa of the mice. All the data are expressed as the means ± SEM. *: P value<0.05, **: P value<0.01.
(A), Changes in the sIgA levels in the colonic faeces. (B), Changes in the cytokines in the colon. All the data are expressed as the means ± SEM. **: P value<0.01, ***: P value<0.001.
