Figure 3

Dose response experiments – relative mRNA levels of D5D, D6D, PPARα, SREBP-1c, MEKK1 and MEK1 after exposure of HEPG2 cells to LA-/ALA-methylester at ratios of 0:1, 1:0, 1:1 and 4:1, 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 ≤ 0.01, ***: p ≤ 0.001).
