Figure 5. Gelidium elegans extract stimulates lipolysis and blocks terminal differentiation via activation of CHOP10 in 3T3-L1 cells. Fully confluent pre-adipocytes were induced by MDI to differentiate into mature adipocytes in the presence or absence of Gelidium elegans extract (GE) or hesperidin (HP) for 8 days. Total protein was harvested after 8 days, and each parameter was measured via western blot analysis with specific antibodies. The protein expression levels were normalized against GAPDH.
