Relative mRNA and/or protein levels of key regulators of muscle fiber composition, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor δ (PPARδ) and PPARγ coactivators (PGCs) in longissimus dorsi (a, b) and biceps femoris (c, d) muscle of pigs of the groups CON, CARN, PIV and CARN + PIV (experiment 2). A, C: Bars represent means ± SD of n = 12 piglets/group and are relative mRNA levels expressed as fold of group CON which was to 1.0. C, D: Bars represent means ± SD of n = 6 piglets/group and are relative protein levels expressed as fold of group CON which was to 1.0. One representative immunoblot for PGC-1 and β-actin is shown. Gene symbols and names: PPARD, peroxisome proliferator activated receptor delta; PPARGC1A, PPARG coactivator 1 alpha; PPARGC1B, PPARG coactivator 1 beta
