Hepatic histopathology and apoptosis in diet-induced-obese mice under Escherichia coli pneumonia

Figure 9. The changes of mRNA expression levels in the liver (expressed as fold change relative to the lean group) after E. coli infection. (A) Caspase-3 ; (B) Caspase-9; (C) Bax; (D) Bcl-2; (E) Bax/Bcl-2. Note: Letter a, b, c or d represent difference (p<0.05) between the group and the lean group, lean-E. coli group, DIO group, or DIO-E. coli group, respectively.
