The objective of this study was to determine whether green tea (GT) inhibits the expression of genes regulating hepatic lipogenesis and intestinal lipid transport in fructose-fed ovariectomized (OX) rats. OX rats were assigned to: 1) a control group (S) fed the AIN-93G diet with corn starch as the major carbohydrate source; 2) another control group (F) fed the same diet but containing fructose at 60% as the major carbohydrate source; 3) a group fed the F diet but containing 0.5% GT; and 4) a… CONTINUE READING
