Figure 5

Relative expression of mucin (MUC2) and immunoglobulin A (IgA) mRNA in broilers at 168-hour (9 days of age) postinoculation with Salmonella. NT-SHAM: no in ovo Thr supplementation and sham-inoculated in the posthatch challenge; T-SHAM: in ovo Thr supplementation and sham-inoculated; NT-SE: no in ovo Thr supplementation and SE NalR-challenged; and T-SE: in ovo Thr supplementation and SE NalR-challenged. The error bars represent the standard deviation.
