Figure 3. ZLE decreased the lipid accumulation induced by FFAs in a dose-dependent manner. (A) Control group: cells treated with DMEM for 24 h; (B) FFAs group: cells treated with 1 mM FFAs for 24 h; (C) Cells treated with fenofibrate in a dose of 100 μM for 24 h; (D,E,F) Cells were treated with ZLE in a various concentration of 125, 250, 500 μg /mL for 24 h. The cells were stained with Oil red O for measuring intracellular lipid accumulation and examined by light microscopy. Amicroplate showed the lipid content in different groups (G., H); Results are representative of 3 independent experiments (n=3)
