Figure 7

Correlation analysis of lipogenic fluxes and related gene expressions. DNL fluxes and gene expression were correlated. Estimations of chain elongation from palmitate (16:0) to stearate (18:0) and desaturation to oleate (18:1) were performed as described in Materials and methods section. Obtained elongase and desaturase fluxes were correlated to Elovl-6 and SCD-1 expression, respectively (upper panels). Also, ACL, ACC and FAS expressions were correlated to DNL-palmitate flux (bottom panels). Data from Figures 5 and 7 (total n=42) were used to calculate the correlation coefficients (r).
