MafK accelerates Salmonella mucosal infection through caspase-3 activation

Figure 1.MafK promotes Salmonella mucosal infection. (A) Survival (n = 12 each group). (B) Body weight loss (n = 12 each group). (C) Weight of spleen (n = 10 each group) (D) weight of cecum (n = 8 each group). (E) Representative gross appearance. (F, G) Representative H&E staining of cecum tissue and pathological score. All data are shown as mean ± SEM. Student’s t-test was performed. Log-rank test was used for statistical analysis of animal mortality. Statistical significance is indicated by *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01.
