L. plantarum attenuates EIEC-induced decrease in TER of Caco-2 cells. (◇) represented control group, (■) EIEC group, (▲) L. plantarum group. TER after enteroinvasive E. coli (EIEC) infection was significantly lower than the control after cultured 6 hours during 24 hrs. Each point represented the mean value obtained from 10 to 12 individual Caco-2 monolayers. Error bars showed the standard error. One-way ANOVA was performed with Tukey Kramer post-hoc comparison. * vs control group at different time, P < 0.05; ** vs L. plantarum group at different time, P < 0.05.
