Lipid profile in plasma and islets from ap2-CETPTg mice. a Total cholesterol, free cholesterol, and cholesteryl ester of islets isolated from aP2-CETPTg mice and WT mice (20 islets per mice, 5 mice per group) were extracted and measured as described in the Methods. b Plasma cholesterol profile in aP2-CETPTg and WT mice (n = 10 per group). c The FC/CE ratio in plasma and islets. d ACAT1 mRNA expression does not differ in the two groups. Values are expressed as mean ± SD. *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, compared with control group
