Table 8 Serum concentrations of glucagon, insulin and leptin in apoE−/− mice

From: Dietary intake of cod and scallop reduces atherosclerotic burden in female apolipoprotein E-deficient mice fed a Western-type high fat diet for 13 weeks

  Dietary treatments
  Chicken (n = 12) Cod-scallop (n = 10)
Glucagon (pg/ml) 698 ± 202 1054 ± 333
Insulin (ng/ml) 1.4 ± 0.4 1.4 ± 0.5
Leptin (pg/ml) 40.3 ± 11.6 25.4 ± 8.0*
  1. The mice were fed diets containing different protein sources for 13 weeks. Data are mean ± SEM (n = 10–12). Data for leptin were analyzed using the independent samples t-Test. Data for insulin were log transformed before analysis using the independent samples t-Test. Data for glucagon were analyzed using the non-parametric Mann–Whitney U test. * indicate significant difference (p < 0.05) between dietary treatments
