Deletion of endogenous cathelicidin increased neutrophils and macrophages into small intestine. Effects of CLP or sham surgery on the relative proportion of neutrophils and macrophages in small intestine of cathelicidin wild-type (Cnlp+/+) or knockout (Cnlp−/−) mice (n = 6 per group) at 24 h were determined by flow cytometry. a Neutrophils were defined as Ly6G+ cells and b macrophages as F4/80+ cells and c M1 macrophages as F4/80+ CD86+ and d M2 macrophages as F4/80+ CD206+. Error bars denote standard error of the mean. **P < 0.01; ****P < 0.0001
