Altered expression of genes involved in the lipid metabolic pathway in response to the high phosphorous (HP) diet.
The HP diet induced alterations in the hepatic expression of enzymes involved in lipid catabolism and biosynthesis. Enzymes and factors whose mRNA expression is higher and lower in the livers of HP diet-fed rats are shown in red and blue, respectively, in comparison to their expression in the livers of control diet-fed rats. See Table 1 for DEGs related to lipid metabolism. Up- and down-regulated pathways are represented with red and blue arrows, respectively. PUFA, polyunsaturated fatty acid; TCA, tricarboxylic acid.
