The cover slide shown on the front cover the immunofluorescence of ZO-1 in Caco-2 cells. Caco-2 cells were incubated without or with 8% of ethanol for 1hour in the absence or presence of 150µmol/L of berberine or 2mmol/L of GLN. Cells were fixed and stained for ZO-1 using immunofluorescent technique. Images were taken by using a confocal laser scanning microscope taken from manuscript entitled "Berberine Ameliorates Ethanol-Induced Disruption of Intestinal Epithelial Tight Junction" by Shanshan Sun, Miao Wang, Haiyan Song, Weiwei Hao and Guang Ji, Volume 1, Issue 1 Page Number 48-55.
