ACC, Spot-14, and D2 mRNA levels in BAT of WT mice treated with T3 and/or NE

Enzyme mRNASalineT3NET3+NE
ACC1.0 ± 0.31.8 ± 0.3*0.7 ± 0.1*1.2 ± 0.3
Spot-141.0 ± 0.42.3 ± 0.3*0.7 ± 0.1*1.3 ± 0.1
D21.0 ± 0.30.1 ± 0.1*3.3 ± 0.4*1.0 ± 0.4
  • Data are means ± SD of four animals. mRNA levels were determined by RT-PCR and corrected by β-actin mRNA.
