  • a Average change (n-fold) in expression levels (log2) for L. plantarum ivi genes in mouse intestinal compartments compared to those in MRS culture medium (time zero). The average includes all mice and time points examined. The values in bold indicate gene transcripts that could be detected in three or more individual mice and were, on average, more than twofold induced according to the one-tailed t test (P < 0.05). BD, below detection.
