Figure 1

Effect of induction of differentiation on lipid accumulation in 3T3-L1 cells, presented by Oil Red-O staining. To quantify lipid accumulation in cells as a result of differentiation, the stain was eluted with 100% isopropanol and measured spectrophotometrically at 520 nm. Mean ± SEM ( ). *Significantly different from control ( , ANOVA & Dunnett’s test).
