Bovine osteopontin modifies the intestinal transcriptome of formula-fed infant rhesus monkeys to be more similar to those that were breastfed.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Osteopontin (OPN) is a multifunctional protein found in human milk at high concentration. OBJECTIVE The impact of supplemental bovine OPN on growth, body composition, and the jejunal transcriptome was assessed. METHODS Newborn rhesus monkeys were randomly assigned to be breastfed (n = 4) or to receive formula [formula fed (FF), n = 6] or… (More)
