From: Dietary constituents reduce lipid accumulation in murine C3H10 T1/2 adipocytes: A novel fluorescent method to quantify fat droplets

Figure 3

Effects of DHA, EPA, β-carotene, HT, (all-E)-lycopene, EGCG and resveratrol on lipid formation measured with the HCA assay. C3H10 T1/2 cells were treated for 7 days. Shown are three parameters (Spot Count/Object, Spot Avg Intensity and Spot Total Area/Object) that quantify lipid formation, as compared to rosiglitazone controls set as 100%. Data are shown as mean ± SEM (n = 10 - 20). Student's t-test: treatment versus control (*) p < 0.05, (**) p < 0.01, (***) p < 0.001.
