Effects of high-KAA diets on adipose and hepatic fat contents. (a) Plasma insulin (3 h fast), fat mass (subcutaneous, epididymal and perinephric) and total liver lipids in pre-LFD- and pre-HFD-treated mice fed the indicated diet for another 4 weeks (n=9). (b) Plasma insulin (3 h fast), fat mass and total liver lipids in ob/ob mice fed LFD and HFD with or without KAA fortification for 2 weeks (n=6). (c) Representative liver pictures from ob/ob mice fed LFD, HFD and HFD with KAA fortification for 2 weeks. All values are expressed as means±s.e.m. (n=6). *P<0.05 for high-KAA diet compared with the corresponding control group.
