Relative levels of XMEs in colon mucosa of rats associated with human compared with rat microbiota

Immunoblot analyses were conducted in samples from six female and five male animals per group. The mean level in animals reassociated with rat microbiota was set as 1. Levels in animals associated with human microbiota were expressed as a multiple of this value. Data are means ± S.D. of the individual animals.
