  1. Values are means ± SEM, n = 8. Means in the same raw with different symbol are significantly different as compared to obese control; *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001. Means in the same raw with different letter are significantly different among control (lean and obese) and obese treated groups (CLA and VA+CLA).
