Tissue lipid levels in male C57/BL6 mice fed 0.4% (w/w) TTP, 0.4% (w/w) TTA, or TTP + TTA for 3 weeks. a Hepatic triacylglycerol (TAG), (b) hepatic cholesterol, (c) hepatic phospholipids, (d) total hepatic lipids, (e) linear regression of liver TAG and β-oxidation of palmitoyl-coenzyme A (n = 18, black circles - control, light gray circles – TTP, grey circles - TTA), (f) heart TAG (n = 5). Values are means with standard deviations (n = 8, unless otherwise stated). Significant difference from controls was determined using one-way ANOVA with Dunnett’s post hoc test (*p ≤ 0.05, **p ≤ 0.01, ***p ≤ 0.001). g Representative images of liver cryo-sections stained with Oil Red O and captured at 40× magnification using a light microscope (n = 3–4). The black line indicates 100 μm
