Figure 2

Upregulated gene expression shared by liver and adipose tissue. (a) Venn diagram displaying numbers of upregulated DEGs common to both liver and adipose tissue induced by either ASP, MSG or the combination of both additives. (b) 2-dimentional heat map of 73 upregulated DEGs common to both hepatic and adipose tissue (P < 0.05, stringency ≥ ± 1.4-fold change in expression).
