From: Morphological adaptation of sheep’s rumen epithelium to high-grain diet entails alteration in the expression of genes involved in cell cycle regulation, cell proliferation and apoptosis

Fig. 4

Expression of genes that regulated the IGF-1 pathway and cell apoptosis in the ruminal epithelium of hay-fed (CON) and high-grain-fed sheep (G7–28). Values are mean ± SEM, n = 5. a-c Values within a column differ if they do not share a common superscript (P < 0.05). Sheep assigned to CON(n = 5), G7(n = 5), G14(n = 5) and G28(n = 5) received a high-grain diet for 0, 7, 14 and 28 d, respectively. Contrast patterns: L = linear, Q = quadratic, C = cubic
