Effects of alginate oligosaccharide on the sIgA content in the duodenum (a), jejunum (b) and ileum (c) of weaned pigs (immunohistochemistry; × 400). Values are means (8 pigs/treatment), with standard errors represented by vertical bars. *P < 0.05 (indicates that the sIgA content is significantly higher in the AOS group than CON group). CON, control (a corn-soybean basal diet); AOS, alginate oligosaccharide (the basal diet supplemented with 100 mg/kg alginate oligosaccharide). sIgA, secretory immunoglobulin A. Scale bar is 40 μm
