Table 1 Biochemical data on the two groups of mice (mean ± SD)

From: Activation of renin-angiotensin system is involved in dyslipidemia-mediated renal injuries in apolipoprotein E knockout mice and HK-2 cells

Indexes Control group (n = 8) HF group (n = 8)
Body weight (g) 28.4 ± 2.0 28.2 ± 1.82
Kidney weight/body weight (mg/g) 14.0 ± 1.8 14.2 ± 1.5
TG (mmol/l) 3.1 ± 0.6 7.5 ± 2.0*
TC (mmol/l) 13.7 ± 2.7 27.8 ± 4.0*
HDL (mmol/l) 1.0 ± 0.4 0.8 ± 0.34
LDL (mmol/l) 5.8 ± 1.5 11.6 ± 3.0*
  1. Compared to the controls, the mice fed with a high fat diet developed hyperlipidemia. TG: triglycerides, TC: total cholesterol, HDL: high-density lipoprotein, LDL: low-density lipoprotein. * P < 0.05 vs. control.
