Human Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy Ameliorates Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Obese Type 2 Diabetic Mice

Figure 5

Human UC-MSC infusions promoted β-oxidation and suppressed lipogenesis. Transcript levels of genes related to β-oxidation (a) and lipogenesis (b) in the livers of the indicated groups assessed by qRT-PCR. Each experiment was repeated 3 times. (c) Immunofluorescence staining for FASN-positive hepatocytes (bright red fluorescence) in representative liver sections of the indicated groups ( sections per group). (d) The proportion of FASN-positive hepatocytes was quantified. All the data are expressed as . ; .
