Analysis of the Wnt ligand family and their receptors in adipose tissue from wild-type mice and adiponectin-transgenic mice.
mRNA levels of the Wnt ligand family (A), Frizzled receptors (B), non-Fzd Wnt receptors (C) and coreceptors (D) in adipose tissue from line 11 (closed bars) and line 13 (open bars) of male adiponectin-transgenic mice. Data are shown as ratios to wild-type C57BL/6 mice at the age of 20 weeks (n = 6–10, for each group). mRNA levels were determined by quantitative real-time RT-PCR and normalized to Gapdh mRNA. Means and SD, *p<0.05, **p<0.01 vs. wild-type mice.
