mRNA expression levels in caecum of 1-day-old birds. IL-6 (a, b) and IL-8 (cf) mRNA expression levels in caecum samples of broiler-type (BT; a, c, e) and layer-type (LT; b, d, f) birds fed with either broiler feed (bf) or layer feed (lf). Birds had been C. jejuni-inoculated at 1 day post hatch. Comparison of cytokine mRNA expression between C. jejuni-free control and C. jejuni-inoculated birds at 1 dpi (ad). Comparison of cytokine mRNA expression between C. jejuni-free control and C. jejuni-inoculated birds at 7 dpi (e, f). Data are presented as the mean mRNA expression (40-Ct) normalized to 28S. Asterisk letters indicate significant differences between C. jejuni-inoculated (C. jejuni) and C. jejuni-free control (con) groups at the indicated days post C. jejuni inoculation (n = 6/group, p < 0.05)
