  1. Note: Values are as mean ± standard deviation, n = 20. A view stands for a whole transverse section of the intestinal. In the same cultivation modes, the differences of capital letters represent the significant difference (P < 0.01) among different intestinal segments. In the different cultivation modes, **represent the significant difference (P < 0.01) among same intestinal segments
