Decaffeinated Green Coffee Bean Extract Attenuates Diet-Induced Obesity and Insulin Resistance in Mice

Figure 6

Effects of green coffee bean extract and 5-CQA supplementation on the expression of gene involved in inflammation in mice fed a HFD. (a) The expression of TLR2 and TLR4 in epididymal adipose tissue was determined by RT-PCR and normalized to that of GAPDH. (b) Protein levels of p-JNK and JNK in the epididymal adipose tissue were determined by Western blotting. (c) The expression of proinflammatory cytokine genes in the epididymal adipose tissue was determined by RT-PCR and normalized to that of GAPDH. Data represent the results of three independent experiments ( , 3 mice per experiment). indicates statistical significance. Values are the mean ± SEM, for each group.
