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

Figure 3

Hepatic NF-κB p65, Nrf2, and HO-1 expression levels in cinnamon polyphenol supplemented high-fat diet- (HFD-) fed rats and control groups. (a)–(c) show the expression level of NF-κB p65, Nrf2, and HO-1 in the groups. The intensity of the bands shown in (d) 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 (d). β-Actin was included to ensure equal protein loading.
