PPAR-γ protein expression in liver tissue. Expression levels of the PPAR-γ and β-actin proteins were determined by western blot and quantitated by microcomputer image device (MCID) image analysis. After 8 weeks of being fed a high-fat diet, KK/HIJ mice were treated with 300 mg/kg/day of CS extract and 0.5 mg/kg/day of rosiglitazone (RS) for 4 consecutive weeks and were compared to the control group (HFD). The PPAR-γ protein expression levels were evaluated in liver (compared to β-actin) at the end of the test period. Data are expressed as the mean ± SE ( for each group); * , as compared to the control group.
