Beta-Glucan-Rich Extract from Pleurotus sajor-caju (Fr.) Singer Prevents Obesity and Oxidative Stress in C57BL/6J Mice Fed on a High-Fat Diet
Effects of GE and metformin on liver enzymes in C57BL/6J mice fed on a high-fat diet or normal diet.
Liver enzymes (mmol/L)
Alanine transaminase (ALT)
Aspartate transaminase (AST)
Alkaline phosphate (ALP)
G-glutamyl transferase (GGT)
GE concentrations were 60, 120, and 240 mg/kg/day. Metformin (MET) is used as positive control. Values expressed are means ± S.D of triplicate measurements. For same enzyme level with various treatment groups, superscripts in the different bar with different alphabets (a–c) were significantly different (). Superscripts with same alphabets were not significantly different between the treated groups ().
