Effects of synthetic inulin and fluvastatin on expression of cytochrome P450 proteins [western blot] in SD or HF diet-fed rats. Rats (7 weeks of age) were fed the SD, SD + I, HF, or HF + I diet for 1 week, and then administered fluvastatin (0 or 4 mg/kg) with the diet daily. The rats were sacrificed 14 days after starting the administration of fluvastatin. The microsome proteins (20 μg/lane) were prepared and subjected to immunoblot analysis.
