Apoptosis analysis. The highest cleaved caspase-3 protein expression, indicative of apoptosis, was detected in the high fat diet group (HF). The expression of cleaved caspase-3 in HF + NAC (1–12) group was lower than the HF group. a Western blot results of cleaved caspase3. b quantification of cleaved caspase-3 expression. The letters represented different groups (CD for chow diet group; CD + NAC for chow diet and NAC intervention 1–12 months group; HF for high fat diet group; HF + NAC (1–6) for high fat diet and NAC intervention 1–6 months group; HF + NAC (1–12) for high fat diet and NAC intervention 1–12 months group, all values are expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 6). *P < 0.05
