Effect of the supplementation with whey protein sweetened with S. rebaudiana on the protein expression of mitochondrial biogenesis markers in resistance-trained rats. Protein expression of PGC-1α (a), TFAM (b) and phospho-AMPKαThr172 (c) in the biceps brachii muscle of the resistance-trained rats and their representatives immunoblotting images. TC, trained control rats; TW, trained rats receiving whey protein; TWS, trained rats receiving whey protein sweetened with S. rebaudiana leaf extracts. n = 5 TC, 6 TW and 6 TWS. Data are presented as the mean ± S.E.M. *p ≤ 0.05 vs TC and #p ≤ 0.05 vs TW, ANOVA, Tukey’s post-hoc test
