FNDCs and GPR116 expression in nonaffected vs. inflamed mucosal samples of IBD patients. Expression levels of FNDC1 and FNDC4 were significantly higher in inflamed samples () than in nonaffected samples () of IBD patients (a). FNDC4, GPR116, CCL2, IL-4, and TNF expression levels in samples of active ulcerative colitis (UC, ) (b) or Crohn’s disease (CD, ) (c), as compared to nonaffected samples. , , and .
