Decrease in triglyceride concentration and cell viability in differentiating preadipocytes after stimulation with EGCG. (A) Triglyceride content in differentiating preadipocytes after stimulation with 50 μM EGCG is shown relative to untreated control cells set as 100%. For experiments, ten independent cell cultures were prepared both for control and EGCG incubation (n = 10). Results are depicted as mean ± SD. Significant differences are marked with an asterisk (* for p < 0.0001). (B) Decreased viability in differentiating preadipocytes after stimulation with 50 μM EGCG compared to control cells. Cell viability is shown relative to untreated control cells set as 100%. For experiments, ten independent cell cultures were prepared both for control and EGCG incubation (n = 10). Results are depicted as mean ± SD. Significant differences are marked with an asterisk (* for p < 0.0001). For our studies we used cells up to the third passage.
