Effect of DHC on hepatic apoM, Foxa2 and LXRα expression. C57BL/6 Mice were randomized into the control group or the DHC group, and treated with either vehicle (cholesterol-free vegetable oil) or DHC (3.0 mg/kg body weight) daily by oral gavage for 1 week. The protein expression of apoM, Foxa2 and LXRα was measured by western blot. All results are presented as mean ± SD of three independent experiments, each performed in triplicate. *P < 0.05 vs. the control group.
