Figure 4. Effect of quercetin on hepatic insulin resistance in TNF-α-induced HepG2 cells. (A) Representative Western blots for total protein and phosphorylation of JNK in TNF-α-induced HepG2 cells. (B) Representative Western blots for total protein and serine phosphorylation of IRS-1 in TNF-α-induced HepG2 cells. (C) mRNA expression of PEPCK and G6Pase in TNF-α-induced HepG2 cell. The data are expressed as the mean ± standard deviation (n=3). The different letters show a significant difference at p < 0.05 as determined by Duncan’s multiple range test
