Table 5 Total RNA yields obtained from mature adipocytes and stromal vascular fraction in CLA treated mice

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

  RNA yield (μg RNA/g of epididymal depot)
  Control CLA1 CLA2
Mature adipocytes 5.5 ± 0.6a 9.8 ± 0.7b 8.8 ± 0.8b
Stromal vascular fraction 8.8 ± 0.4 6.1 ± 1.2 11.0 ± 2.5
  1. Epididymal adipose tissue was digested by collagenase and then separated into mature adipocytes and stromal vascular fraction. RNA extracted from each fraction was quantified and referred per gram of epididymal adipose tissue weight. Data are expressed in μg RNA per g of epididymal tissue and are the means ± SEM of 7-8 mice/group. Means in a row without a common letter differ, P < 0.05 (ANOVA followed by LSD test).
