  • a The percentages of enterocytes, goblet cells, and Paneth cells in the epithelial isolates used for microarray analysis are shown for day 0 and day 14 of infection (n = 4). *, P ≤ 0.05 (nonparametric Mann-Whitney test). Note that the day 14 epithelial isolates contained a significantly higher proportion of goblet cells and Paneth cells than the day 0 epithelial isolates.
