Effects of RCE on TG content and expression of lipogenic enzymes in HepG2 cells. HepG2 cells were cultured in high-glucose (33 mM) medium containing Ins (100 nM) with or without the indicated concentration of RCE (μg/mL) or AICAR (2 mM). Lipogenesis (a), relative protein levels SREBP1and C/EBP (b), and gene expression (e and f) were measured. A quantitative analysis of the protein levels of SREBP1 (c) and C/EBP (d) was conducted. The results represent the mean ± SEM (n = 3), p < 0.05, p < 0.01, p < 0.001 vs. the sample without RCE
