Low-Frequency Intermittent Hypoxia Promotes Subcutaneous Adipogenic Differentiation

Figure 1

Intermittent hypoxia (IH) accelerated subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) but not visceral adipose tissue (VAT) adipogenesis. The gene expression levels of adipogenic markers and regulators in depot-specific adipose tissue after 6-week IH exposure. The mRNA expressions of FABP4 (a), PPARγ (b), CEBPα (c), and GLUT4 (d) were measured by real-time PCR. The adiponectin (e) levels released into conditioned medium were measured with ELISA. Protein expressions of adipogenic markers and regulators in depot-specific adipose tissue after IH exposure (f–i). The protein expressions of FABP4 (f and g) and CHOP (h and i) in VAT and SAT were detected by Western blots. . Bars: mean ± SEM. and .
