Salmonella infection perturbs the host’s hepatobiliary homeostasis. (A) bile volumes recovered from the gallbladders of mice orally infected with Salmonella at the indicated hours post-infection (hpi). (B) Transcript levels of hepatic genes involved in liver biliary metabolism in mice infected with Salmonella, relative to the levels of uninfected animals (defined as 1, dashed line) at 24, 72 and 120 hours post-infection. Data by qPCR.
