Effect of TRP supplement and diets enriched with fatty acids on portal endotoxin, hepatic triglycerides and tight junction proteins. Portal endotoxin (A/E), triglycerides (B/F) and tight junction protein concentrations (C/D) were analyzed in mice fed TRP and SFA or MUFA diet. a
P < 0.05 ANOVA result for effect of the diets compared to C; b
P < 0.05 compared to C + TRP; c
P < 0.01 compared to SFA, c
P < 0.05 compared to MUFA. Means ± SEM, n = 5–6. Abbreviations: C, control; TRP, Tryptophan; SFA, saturated fatty acids, MUFA, monounsaturated fatty acids.
