From: Alginate oligosaccharide-induced intestinal morphology, barrier function and epithelium apoptosis modifications have beneficial effects on the growth performance of weaned pigs

Fig. 4

Percentage of apoptotic cells in the small intestine of weaned pigs fed diets containing or lacking alginate oligosaccharide. Frames were divided into four quadrants: Q2–1 represents necrotic cells; Q2–2 represents late-stage apoptotic cells; Q2–3 represents normal cells; Q2–4 represents early-stage apoptotic cells. CON, control (a corn-soybean basal diet); AOS, alginate oligosaccharide (the basal diet supplemented with 100 mg/kg alginate oligosaccharide). 7-AAD, 7-aminoactinomycin D
