Sodium Butyrate-Modulated Mitochondrial Function in High-Insulin Induced HepG2 Cell Dysfunction

Figure 2

Influence of NaB treatment on function of mitochondria. (a) NaB increased content of mitochondrial DNA. (b) Mitochondria were observed by immunofluorescence method (magnification: 1200). Number of copies for mitochondrial DNA was analyzed by (c) Q-PCR and (d, e) flow cytometry. (f, g) Mitochondrial membrane potentials were determined by flow cytometry. NC: normal control; IR: high insulin-induced insulin resistance; NaB: sodium butyrate. , , and .
