Transit and survival of IRFP713-expressing L. lactis in mice. Mice were administered with 5.0 × 1010 cells. Intestines were extracted at different time points and recorded by epifluorescence imaging (a). Radiant efficiencies [(p/sec/cm2/sr)/(μW/cm2); b] and numbers of viable bacteria (CFU/cm2; c) were determined in different parts of the intestine as a function of time. Stomach is shown in red, small intestine in blue, caecum in green, and large intestine in brown
