The jejunal disaccharidase activity and mRNA expression of the glucose transport receptors in 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-c) The brush border enzyme activity of the jejuna in suckling piglets. (d-e) The relative mRNA expression of jejunal nutrient transporter in suckling piglets. The values were calculated relative to the expression of β-actin with formula 2-∆∆Ct. Values are expressed as means ± SD. Bars assigned with different lower-case letters indicate significant differences. CON: control group; GOS: GOS group
