Supplementary Material

The compositions of cocoa powder are shown in Supplementary Table 1.

The detailed mouse Western diet compositions are listed in Supplementary Table 2.

The results of the PCR array are shown in Supplementary Table 3. We attempted to investigate which genes had altered expression levels in the lesions. We performed a PCR array using samples from the high group and comparing them with the controls. n = 3 for each group. Data are expressed as the mean ±SEM.

RT-PCR primer sequences are shown in Supplementary Table 4.
