Table 5 Expression levels of pro and inflammatory interleukins genes (IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10) and TNFα gene in the distal intestine of European sea bass fed different diets

From: Butyrate and taurine exert a mitigating effect on the inflamed distal intestine of European sea bass fed with a high percentage of soybean meal

  1. The number of transcript copies of target genes was quantified by One-Step Taqman® real-time RT-PCR technique using the standard curve method. Values are mean ± SD (n = 6). The values in each row with different superscript letters are significantly different (P < 0.05)
