  1. Each value represents as the means ± S.E.M. for six mice. Total white adipose tissue weight represents the sum of abdominal and subcutaneous white adipose tissue weights. §Abdominal white adipose tissue weight represents the sum of epididymal, perirenal and omental white adipose tissue weights. Asterisk shows significant differences when compared to the control group by Dunnett’s test (*: P < 0.05, **: P < 0.01).
