Cinnamon Polyphenol Extract Inhibits Hyperlipidemia and Inflammation by Modulation of Transcription Factors in High-Fat Diet-Fed Rats

Figure 2

Hepatic PPARα and IRS expression levels in cinnamon polyphenol supplemented high-fat diet- (HFD-) fed rats and control groups. (a) and (b) show the expression level of PPARα and IRS in the groups. The intensity of the bands shown in (c) was quantified by densitometric analysis. Data are expressed as a ratio of normal control value (set to 100%). Each bar represents the mean and standard error of mean. Blots were repeated at least 3 times () and only a representative blot is shown in (c). β-Actin was included to ensure equal protein loading.
