Effects of HOX-7 on mRNA expression of adipogenesis related genes in epididymal adipose tissue. mRNA expression of (A) PPARγ, (B) C/EBPα, (C) SREBP1c, (D) aP2, (E) LPL, (F) LXR. Total RNA was prepared for the real-time-PCR analysis of adipogenesis-related genes expressions from adipose tissues. Real-time PCR analysis was conducted using a Step One Plus® Real-time PCR system. Data were normalized to the GAPDH mRNA levels. ND: Normal diet group; HFD: High fat diet group; H100: HOX-7 (100 mg/kg/day, po) treated with HFD group; H200: HOX-7 (200 mg/kg/day, po) treated with HFD group. The values are represented as mean ± SE (n = 8) of three independent experiments. #
P < 0.05 versus ND group. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, and ***P < 0.001 versus HFD group.
