  1. 1Data are presented as mean + SEM in perirenal fat, semimembranosus proprius (SMP) and longissimus (LL) muscles. Abbreviation used: au (arbitrary units).
  2. *Difference in heart-fatty acid bind protein content (H-FABP) in hLPL rabbits as compared with wild-type littermates (P < 0.05).
  3. †Difference in insulin-sensitive glucose transporter GLUT4 in hLPL rabbits as compared with wild-type littermates (P < 0.10).
