Effects of piperine on the expression of glucose/fat metabolism-associated mRNAs in the soleus muscle after acute exercise. a Total RNA from soleus muscles was isolated, and the expression of glucose metabolism-related genes was evaluated using RT-PCR. The graphs were obtained from the left bands and show GLUT4 and MCT1 mRNA expression (%). Data are expressed as the mean ± SEM (n = 6). mRNA expression in the exercise (EX) group was set at 100%. *P < 0.05 versus the EX group. b The expression of fat metabolism-related genes was analyzed by RT-PCR. The graph shows FAT/CD36, CPT1, and CS mRNA expression (%). Data are expressed as the mean ± SEM (n = 6). mRNA expression in the exercise (EX) group was set at 100%. *P < 0.05 versus the EX group
