Fig. 3

Relative gene expression of ZO1 (a), ZO2 (b), CLDN1 (c) and CLDN2 (d) in the ileum of 7-day-old, 14-day-old and 28-day-old broilers. The data are presented as means ± SEM (n = 5). Asterisks (* and **) represent significant differences with P < 0.05 and P < 0.01, respectively. ZO1: zonula occludens-1; ZO2: zonula occludens-2; CLDN1: claudin-1; CLDN2: claudin-2. C group: control group; F group: fermentation broth group
