From: Twist 1 regulates the expression of PPARγ during hormone-induced 3T3-L1 preadipocyte differentiation: a possible role in obesity and associated diseases

Figure 3

Twist 1 protein expression was decreased in the adipose tissue of obese subjects. (A/B) The expression of Twist 1 in subcutaneous adipose tissue from obese C57/BL6J mice was significantly downregulated compared with its expression in the control groups (*P < 0.05 vs. control). (C/D) Twist 1 expression was reduced in subcutaneous adipose tissues from obese Wistar rats (*P < 0.05 vs. control). (E/F) The expression level of Twist 1 in subcutaneous adipose tissues from individuals with a BMI ≥ 30 was shown to be lower than the level in non-obese individuals (* vs. 20 < BMI < 25 group, P < 0.05).
