Tributyrin Supplementation Protects Immune Responses and Vasculature and Reduces Oxidative Stress in the Proximal Colon of Mice Exposed to Chronic-Binge Ethanol Feeding

Figure 4

Effects of tributyrin on expression of pro- and antioxidant mediators in the proximal colon following chronic-binge ethanol exposure. Mice were treated as described in Figure 1, and the proximal colon was excised and used to prepare RNA. (a–d) Expression of NOX1, HO-1, SOD2, and TRX1 mRNA was detected in the mouse proximal colon using quantitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. Values represent . –6 mice per treatment group. Values with different alphabetical superscripts were significantly different from each other, .
