Persistence of B. breve UCC2003 pLuxMC derivatives in the murine GIT. The log of colony forming units of B. breve UCC2003 containing either pLuxMC1 (●) or pLuxMC2 (■) per gram of faeces over 33 day trial period. The data is representative of duplicate plating from the available feacal samples at each given time point.
