Age-related shifts in gut microbiota contribute to cognitive decline in aged rats

Figure 8. Effect of FMT on inflammation and oxidative stress. n = 6. FMT increases serum levels of IL-1β (A) TNF-α (B) and IL-6 (C). FMT increases expression of IL-1β (D) TNF-α (E) and IL-6 (F) in mPFC and hippocampus. Effect of FMT on SOD activity (G) GSH-PX activity (H) and MDA content (I) in serum. Effect of FMT on SOD activity (J) GSH-PX activity (K) and MDA content (L) in mPFC and hippocampus. Error bars represent SEM; * P < 0.05 and ** P < 0.01 versus the NFMT group.
