Effect of sodium palmitate on the expression of mTOR/S6K1, LXRα and lipogenic genes in HepG2 cells. Cells were treated with PA as indicated for 24 h and 48 h. Under these conditions, the protein levels of mTOR, S6K1, LXRα, SREBP-1c, FAS, ACC1 and phosphorylated mTOR, S6K1 were determined by Western blotting (a), and mRNA expression levels of lipogenesis-related markers were determined by qRT-PCR (b). Data are presented as the means±SDs of three independent experiments, each of which was performed in triplicate (*P < 0.05 versus the control group)
