Fumonisin B1 (FB1) alters intestinal epithelial cell cycle, absorptive, secretory and barrier properties of intestinal epithelial cells in vitro but data with intestinal mucosa are lacking. Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that acute exposure to FB1 alters indices of intestinal absorptive and secretory physiology and barrier function ex vivo. Eighteen non-littermates pigs (n = 18) weaned at 28 d were slaughtered 7 d post-weaning. Jejunal tissue was collected immediately, the mucosa was… CONTINUE READING
