mRNA expression of FXR target genes induced by B. dorei or E. limosum. Cells were cultured in 24-well plates with density of 3 × 105/well for 24 h, bacterial culture supernatants were introduced for 24 h incubation before total RNA isolation. mRNA levels were normalized to Gapdh mRNA levels via the relative standard curve method: (a) Ibabp expression levels, (b) Ostα expression levels, (c) Fgf19 expression levels. Values are the mean ± SD (n = 3). Differences compared with the GAM culture treatment group were calculated using Student’s t-test (*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001)
