Table 2 Cytokine levels in 3T3-L1

From: Supplementing alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) and vitamin D3 in high fat diet decrease IL-6 production in murine epididymal adipose tissue and 3T3-L1 adipocytes following LPS stimulation

  Control LPS LPS plus Vit.D LPS plus Vit.E
IL-6 (pg/ug protein -1 ) 0.272 ± 0.034a 36.80 ± 16.08b 4.36 ± 2.16a 14.54 ± 4.95c
IL-10 (pg/ug protein -1 ) ND 55.88 ± 4.84b 56.95 ± 5.25b 58.94 ± 5.50b
IL-6/IL-10 - 0.67 ± 0.09a 0.08 ± 0.01b 0.25 ± 0.03b
