The hepatic gene expression. (a) PPARγ and CD36, (b) SREBP-1c and target genes, (c) PPARα and target genes, and (d) enzymes related to ketone body synthesis. The percentages of mRNA levels relative to those of HFD-fed mice are shown. HFD, high-fat diet; VLCD, very-low carbohydrate diet; LFD, low-fat diet. Values are the mean ± SEM (n = 8). *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001
