Table 2 Adipose tissue weights in mice supplemented with CLA

From: Moderate doses of conjugated linoleic acid reduce fat gain, maintain insulin sensitivity without impairing inflammatory adipose tissue status in mice fed a high-fat diet

  1. Weights of white adipose tissues from different anatomical locations and brown adipose tissue of mice treated with a daily dose of CLA equivalent to 3 mg CLA/animal in CLA1 group and 10 mg/animal in CLA2 group for the first 30 d and 6 mg CLA/animal in CLA1 group and 20 mg/animal in CLA2 group for the subsequent 35 d of treatment. Data are expressed in grams and are the means ± SEM of 8 mice. Means in a row without a common letter differ, P < 0.05 (ANOVA followed by LSD test).
