Heat Killed Salmonella typhimurium Protects Intestine Against Radiation Injury Through Wnt Signaling Pathway

Figure 1

Mice intestine damage induced by radiation exposure was alleviated by HKST pretreatment. Mice receiving IR exposure were pretreated with PBS or HKST. At 3 days postirradiation, mice were sacrificed, and the protective effect of HKST on intestine was tested by Hematoxylin-Eosin (HE) staining (a), based on which villus length (b), crypt depth (c), and number of crypts (d) were analyzed. TdT-mediated dUTP nick-end labeling (TUNEL) assay was performed in intestine tissues, and quantification analysis was done with image J software (e, f). Values were given as mean ± SEM (n = 6), , represents the HKST + IR group versus IR group.
