Figure 2

Kinetics experiments – relative mRNA levels of D5D, D6D, PPARα, SREBP-1c, MEKK1 and MEK1 after 24 hrs exposure of HEPG2 cells to ALA-methylester, relating to non-exposed control cells (mRNA levels set as 1). Data are expressed as mean ± SEM. Asterisks indicate a significant difference of the values compared to control cells (*: p ≤ 0.05 **: p ≤ 0.01, ***: p ≤ 0.001).
