Fig. 3 Effects of antibiotic exposure on the total number of ganglia in the myenteric plexus. Antibiotic administration
significantly reduced the average number of total ganglia per myenteric plexus (p=0.05, N=8 per group) (A). (B) Representative microphotographs showing the distribution of myenteric ganglia at 10X magnification in antibiotic-treated and
control mice. Circles represent clearly delineated ganglia in antibiotic and control mice. Scale bar = 0.75μm. Data are
reported as mean ± SEM. * P < 0.05, significantly different from control.
