From: Carnitine supplementation to obese Zucker rats prevents obesity-induced type I to type II muscle fiber transition and favors an oxidative phenotype of skeletal muscle

Figure 2

Relative protein level of PGC-1α (A) and PPARδ (B) in M. rectus femoris of lean rats (lean control), Zucker rats fed a control diet (obese control) or Zucker rats fed a diet supplemented with 3 g/kg diet carnitine (obese carnitine) for 4 wk. Bars represent means ± SEM, n = 6/group. Means without a common letter differ (P < 0.05). (C) Representative immunoblots specific to PGC-1α, PPARδ and GAPDH as internal control are shown for one animal per group; immunoblots for the other animals revealed similar results.
