Manifestation of the NAFLD characteristics. (A) Changes in the body weight over time in mice fed the NC and FF diets (12–16 mice per group) are presented as mean ± SEM. (B) Plasma ALT levels at 6 h after saline injection in mice in the NC-S and FF-S groups; each bar represents mean ± SEM value of 6–8 mice per group. (C) H&E-stained liver sections of mice in the (a) NC-S and (b) FF-S groups. (b); magnification, ×200. The total hepatic triglyceride levels were plotted. (D) Relative mRNA levels of genes encoding hepatic markers in mice in the NC-S and FF-S groups. RT-qPCR was performed to determine the mRNA expression. Data are presented as mean ± SD values obtained over measurements carried out thrice by pooling 6–8 mice per group. Relative values were compared with the mean value obtained for mice in the NC-S group. ALT, alanine transaminase. *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01
