Effects of Lyc, Res and EPA on lipid droplet parameters in differentiated human adipocytes. Primary human pre-adipocytes (HPAd) were differentiated for 14 days in the presence of bio-active compounds. a Representative fluorescent images of cells after growth in non-differentiation medium (CTRL) and differentiation-only medium in the absence (Diff CTRL) or presence of resveratrol (Res), lycopene (Lyc) and Lyc/Res at high concentrations. b Quantification of the effects of Lyc, Res and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) alone and c of the combinations of EPA/Res and Lyc/Res on lipid droplet features. Shown are three parameters (Lipid Droplets/Cell, Lipid Droplet Area/Cell and Lipid Droplet Intensity/Cell) that quantify lipid accumulation in adipocytes, as compared to Diff CTRL set as 100%. Data are represented as overall mean ± SEM (7 donors, n ≥ 6). (*) p < 0.05, (**) p < 0.01, (#) p < 0.001 (versus Diff CTRL, linear mixed model)
