Effects of maternal methionine nutrition on gene expression in jejunum of 14 days old suckling piglets. The relative mRNA abundance of genes related to protein and peptide degradation (a), the relative mRNA abundance of genes related to lipid metabolism (b), the relative mRNA abundance of genes related to intestinal transport genes (c), the relative mRNA abundance of genes related to growth regulation (d), the relative mRNA abundance of genes related to the regulation of gene expression, signal transduction and aminosugar synthesis (e) and the relative mRNA abundance of genes related to immune function (f). Data were means ± pooled SEM. Control (CON), DL-methionine (DLM), DL-2-hydroxy-4-methylthiobutanoic acid diets (HMTBA), aminopeptidase A (ENPEP), cathepsin F precursor (CTSF), ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase FAF-γ (USP9Y), acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (ACADL), carnitine transporter 2 (SLC22A5), oxysterol binding protein-related protein 10 (OSBPL10), sodium- and chloride-dependent creatine transporter 1 (SLC6A8), preprogalanin (GAL), somatostatin precursor (SST), IGF-II precursor (IGF2), DNA-binding protein inhibitor ID-2 (ID2), adenylate cyclase (ADCY7), N-acyl-D-glucosamine 2-epimerase (RENBP), vanin-1 (VNN1), leukocyte antigen related protein precursor (PTPRF). a, b, cMeans for same genes with no common letters differ (P < 0.05)
