Effect of nopal consumption on histological morphology and expression of occludin-1 in the colon of Wistar rats fed different dietary treatments. (AE) Hematoxilin-Eosin staining (HE), (F) Mucosal layer quantitative analysis. Values are shown as means ± SEM, n = 5 rats per group and (GK). Immunohistochemical analysis of occludin-1 in the colon of rats fed control diet (C), high fat diet with 5% sucrose in their drinking water (HFS), obese rats consuming HFS + 5% nopal (HFS + N), and obese rats switched to C diet with (HFS-C + N) or without (HFS-C) 5% nopal at the end of the treatment period 400X magnification.
