From: Fatty acid desaturation index correlates with body mass and adiposity indices of obesity in Wistar NIN obese mutant rat strains WNIN/Ob and WNIN/GR-Ob

Figure 2

Desaturation Index of plasma and various tissues of WNIN/GR-Ob strain rats. Values are mean ± SE of 6 rats from each phenotype. (a) 16:1/16:0 & (b) 18:1/18:0 fatty acid ratio of plasma, liver, various white adipose tissues (WAT) (RPWAT-retroperitoneal, EWAT-epididymal, SWAT-subcutaneous & OWAT-Omentum) and BAT. *Statistically significant at p ≤ 0.05 level (Student's t-test).
