Figure 4. Effect of Adzuki extract on proliferation of 3T3-L1 adipocytes during early differentiation. Adzuki extract or a vehicle was added to the differentiation medium at day 0 and cells were cultured for 16 h or 72 h. Then, the cells were incubated in EdU and DAPI solution. Images showing EdU incorporation (green) and DAPI (blue) in 3T3-L1 cells. Representative images from at least three independent experiments are shown
