[…] expression in IEC subtypes, and the regulation may alter intestinal homeostasis. Quantified miRNA analysis among germ-free, conventionalized and conventionally raised chow-fed animals was achieved by miRquant. It was found that expression of some miRNAs are different among IEC subtypes and the difference depends on microbial status. Among these miRNAs, 19 miRNAs in intestinal epithelial stem cell […]
