Figure 4

Effect of lubiprostone on bacterial load in the small intestinal lumen of WT and CF mice. After an overnight fast, the contents of the small intestine were flushed with a mucolytic agent, and the flushed material was processed to measure copies of the bacterial 16 S rRNA gene by quantitative PCR (see Materials and Methods). Horizontal bars represent the group means. [5 WT control (Con), 12 WT + lubiprostone (Lubi), 6 CF control, 18 CF + lubiprostone; *: P = 0.008 CF control vs. WT control; +: P < 0.010 +Lubi vs. control of same genotype]
