Antiobesity Effects of an Edible Halophyte Nitraria retusa Forssk in 3T3-L1 Preadipocyte Differentiation and in C57B6J/L Mice Fed a High Fat Diet-Induced Obesity

Figure 4

Effect of daily oral administration of Nitraria retusa (50 and 100 mg/kg body weight) on genes regulating lipid metabolism in liver of mice fed with high-fat diet. Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPAR γ 1) (a) and peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha (PPAR α) (b). Real-time PCR was conducted and result was expressed as mRNA expression fold change compared to the control high-fat diet (HFD). Bars represent mean ± SD. , compared to the high-fat diet group.
