Quantification of Rab 3D, Rab 7 and Rab18 protein and mRNA content in livers of AFLD and NAFLD rats. a Representative Western Blot analysis for Rab3D, Rab7 and Rab18 proteins. b Quantitative data were analyzed as intensity units using the Odyssey Infrared Imager associated software. Results were normalized to β-actin and expressed as percentage of their respective controls. c mRNA expression of Rab GTPases 3D, 7 and Rab18. The mRNA levels of Rabs were measured by real-time PCR. Values represent the fold change compared to respective controls. Significant decreases in protein content and expression were noted in Rabs 3D, 7 and Rab18 for the AFLD, but not the NAFLD rats. Values are means ± SEM, n =8, *p ≤ 0.05
