ICR and C57BL/6J mice were fed experimental diets containing either a 2% fatty acid preparation rich in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) or a preparation rich in linoleic acid and free of CLA for 21 days. CLA greatly decreased weights of white adipose tissue and interscapular brown adipose tissue in the two strains. CLA reduced mRNA levels of glucose transporter 4 (Glut 4) in white and brown adipose tissue of both strains. A CLA-dependent decrease in mRNA levels of peroxisome proliferator… CONTINUE READING
