Effects of cecal-ligation and puncture (CLP) or sham surgery (Sham) on acid mucin in distal ileum of cathelicidin wild-type (Cnlp+/+) or knockout (Cnlp−/−) mice (n = 6 per group) at 24 h after CLP as determined by quantitative real-time PCR and a Alcian blue perioidic acid Schiff reaction, respectively. b The number of acid-mucin-producing globlet cells per villus and c the expression of mucin genes MUC1 and MUC2 were compared. Error bars represent standard error of the mean. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01
