Figure 4

The effect of leucine, and/or nifedipine and/or calcitriol on PGC-1α and UCP3 gene expression in C2C12 myocytes pretreated with CM derived from adipocytes or co-cultured with differentiated with 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Cells were treated with or without leucine, nifedipine, or/and calcitriol for 48 hours. Values are presented as mean ± SD, n = 6. Means with * differ compared with control PGC-1α and ** differ compared with control UCP3 with p < 0.001.
