Heated supernatants and glucose uptake. Accumulation of tracer (2 μM) glucose by Caco-2 cells after exposure for 10 min to the unheated (Supernatant) and heated (100°C; 10 min; HSupernatant) cell-free supernatants prepared after 72 h of anaerobic growth of Lactobacillus acidophilus in CDM with 110 mM fructose (CDM-fructose; top panel) and 110 mM mannose (CDM-mannose; bottom panel). Values (means ± SEM) represent percentages of accumulation by cells on the same plate exposed to CDM-fructose without bacteria. Bars with different letters are significantly different (n = 8 to 12 comparisons).
