Berberine Improves Insulin Sensitivity by Inhibiting Fat Store and Adjusting Adipokines Profile in Human Preadipocytes and Metabolic Syndrome Patients
Effect of berberine on human preadipocyte proliferation. Cells were cultured in growth medium with different concentrations of berberine for 1, 2, and 3 days. At each culture time point, proliferation capacity was determined by MTT assay. Values are expressed as percentage of the untreated controls and represent the mean ± SEM of the three separate experiments in eight replicates. *, compared to control at each time point.
