Glycogen and triglyceride accumulation and insulin signaling in the liver at the end of experiment. After 8 wk of feeding diabetic rats from each group fed high fat diets with casein (diabetic-CON), 5% CKJ, 5% HTL, or 5% CKJ+5% HTL, the liver was collected after injecting with insulin (5 U/kg body weight) for 10 min and lyzed with designated buffer. Hepatic glycogen and triglyceride contents (A), hepatic insulin signaling (B) and AMPK signaling (C) were determined. Normal-CON group represented non-diabetic Sham rats fed with the casein diet. PEPCK, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase. *Significantly different among the all groups at p<0.05 by one-way ANOVA. a,b,c,dValues in the same row with different superscripts were significantly different in Tukey test at P<0.05.
