Relative mRNA abundance of genes involved in lipid and tocopherol metabolism in liver (a), adipose tissue (b) and mammary gland (c) of rats fed either a control or a CLA-supplemented diet. Bars represent mean ± SEM of 12 to 14 rats per group and are expressed as fold of relative mRNA abundance of the control group. *, different from the control group at P < 0.05. CYP3A1, cytochrome P450, family 3, subfamily A, polypeptide 1; LDLR, low density lipoprotein receptor; LPL, lipoprotein lipase; SCARB1, scavenger receptor class B, member 1; TTPA: α-tocopherol transfer protein
