Quantification of IL-6, TNF-α, IL-1β and TLR5 mRNA in colon samples. Figure 3A and 3B illustrate in a bar diagram that IL-6 and TNF-α mRNA expression increased markedly in control group compared with mannoprotein (n = 9 control group, n = 8 mannoprotein group). Figure 3C shows IL-1β mRNA expression in both groups represented as a bar diagram. No statistical differences were observed between both groups. Finally figure 3D shows the results for TLR5 gene expression in both groups with augmented levels in the control group compared with mannoprotein. Error bars represent the standard deviations. * Significant at p < 0.05 compared with control.
