Table 3 Summary table of differences in staining at mucosal sites by differing butyrate level

From: Keratin 8 expression in colon cancer associates with low faecal butyrate levels

Tissue type Keratin expression score (mean) P value
  Low butyrate (n = 5, mean = 2.4 mM) High butyrate group (n = 4, mean = 5.5 mM)  
MS surface intensity 2.12 1.4 0.12
MS crypt intensity 1.84 1.66 0.6
MS crypt extent 2.24 1.76 0.44
CO surface intensity 2.44 2.15 0.58
CO crypt intensity 1.82 1.67 0.59
CO crypt extent 2.12 2.0 0.85
