T. indica stems ethanol extract, two fractions (hexane and ethyl acetate) and four phenolic compounds (MHQ-1, MHQ-2, MHQ-3, MHQ-4) were investigated for their ability to enhance adipogenesis in the absence and presence of insulin (10 μg/mL) and rosigiltazone (10 μM) at three different safe concentrations obtained according to MTT viability assay (12.5–50 μg/mL). Cells in DMEM without any treatment were considered as untreated control. Cells treated with insulin and rosiglitazone were taken as insulin control and positive control. Data expressed in percentage (rosiglitazone was taken as 100%) mean ± SD, n = 9 (biological triplicate each containing n = 3). One-way ANOVA showed significant value, **p < 0.005
