Gene expression and protein levels in the abdominal aorta tissue in Tibetan minipigs. Gene expression was measured by qPCR, and protein levels were measured by western blot assay in control (Ctr) and high-fat/cholesterol atherogenic diet minipigs (HFC). (A)
PPAR-α mRNA, (B)
PPAR-β/δ mRNA, (C)
PPAR-γ mRNA, (D) western blot of PPAR proteins, and quantification of (E) PPAR-α, (F) PPAR-β/δ, and (G) PPAR-γ proteins. Data are presented as mean ± SEM. a, P < 0.05 and b, P < 0.01 versus Ctr group.
