Figure Lengend Snippet: Expression levels of IgM, IgG, IgA, sIgA in serum and sIgA in faecal samples of the COS treatment and control gilts at 19 d after giving birth and 90 d of gestation, respectively. (A) The mean (±SEM) concentrations (mg/mL) of immune markers of IgM, IgG, IgA and sIgA in blood serum samples of the COS treatment and control gilts at weaning d 19 after giving birth. Samples without any hemolysis were used in this assay. (B) The mean (±SEM) of sIgA concentration (mg/mL) in faecal samples of the COS treatment and control gilts at d 90 of gestation. ∗, P
Article Snippet: A pig immunoglobulin M (IgM) ELISA kit (Life Diagnostics, Inc. USA, Catalog no. 5015-9), immunoglobulin G (IgG) and immunoglobulin A (IgA) ELISA kits (Bethyl Laboratories, Inc. USA, Catalog no. E101-104 and Catalog no. E100-102) were used to determine the serum concentrations of IgM, IgG, and IgA, respectively.
