Figure 2: PPARγ2 mRNA and protein levels. IUGR increases VAT PPARγ2 mRNA and protein levels in male rats. DHA-IUGR normalized male VAT PPARγ2 levels and increased SAT PPARγ2 mRNA levels male and female rats. Results are IUGR (white bars) or DHA-IUGR (black bars) relative to sex-matched controls (represented by the dotted line). Errors are SEM. SAT is subcutaneous adipose tissue, and VAT is visceral adipose tissue, *.
