Effects of oral gavage of LPS on gut cytokine expression in female and male mice. a Expression levels of IL-6 showed a sex-dependent effect, with LPS causing a reduction of IL-6 in males and an increase in females. bd However, the expression of IL-10, TNF-α, and IL-1β did not depend on sex or experimental treatment. Data are expressed relative to levels of saline-treated males. Error bars are 95% confidence intervals. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01
