Knockdown of TGR5 abolished the TUDCA-improved epithelial barrier impairment in E. coli-treated IPEC-J2 cells. A-D Western blotting measurements of the protein levels of ZO-1, OCC and Claudin-1 in IPEC-J2 cells after treatment with TUDCA and/or E. coli and/or TGR5 siRNA. Tubulin was used as the loading control (n = 4). E The intracellular cAMP level in IPEC-J2 cells (n = 6). P < 0.05. NS = not significant
