Figure 3. Effect of Gelidium elegans extract on fat accumulation and the expression of key adipogenic factors in 3T3-L1 cells. (A) Oil Red O staining was used to assess adipocyte differentiation at 8 days in the presence or absence of Gelidium elegans extract (GE) or hesperidin (HP). These data were measured as the standard deviation of quadruplicates. Values with different letters are significantly different, p<0.05. (B) Total protein was assessed after 8 days, and each parameter was measured using western blot analysis with specific antibodies. The protein expression levels were normalized against GAPDH.
