From: Regulation of intestinal epithelial cells transcriptome by enteric glial cells: impact on intestinal epithelial barrier functions

Figure 4

Enteric glial cells (EGC) induced an increase in intestinal epithelial cells(IEC) adhesion. (A):EGC induced a significant increase in IEC total adhesion (i.e. without discriminating cell-to-matrix and cell-to-cell adhesion) after 24 hours of co-culture in presence of EGC (+ EGC) as compared to control (- EGC) (n = 5; p = 0.008; Mann-Whitney test). (B): IEC were significantly more attached to their matrix when they were cultured for 24 hours with EGC (+ EGC) as compared to control (- EGC) (n = 13; p < 0.001; Mann-Whitney test).
