The jejunal morphology of suckling piglets. Piglets assigned to CON (n = 6) and GOS (n = 6) received physiological saline and GOS solution for 7 d after birth, respectively. (a) Representative histological micrographs of jejunum in suckling piglets. The scale bar of jejunal morphology on d 8 was 500 μm, and the scale bar of jejunal morphology on d 21 was 200 μm. (b) Villus height, (c) Crypt depth and (d) Villus height: crypt depth radio of jejunal morphology in suckling piglets. Values are expressed as means ± SD. Bars assigned with different lower-case letters indicate a significant difference. CON: control group; GOS: GOS group
