Table 2 Effect of transilent siRNA PPARα transfection (1.5 μg, overnight) on PPARα expression (relative to β-actin) in islets isolated from UCP2 KO mice and WT mice (compared to the transilent siRNA control vector). Data are expressed as means ± sem (n = 4–7).

Groups Control vector Transilent PPARα vector
UCP2 KO 0.349 ± 0.136 0.029 ± 0.02
WT 0.242 ± 0.116 0.024 ± 0.007
