Influence of the water-soluble extract of Pacific Krill on adipocyte differentiation in hMSCs.
After 13 days of adipocyte differentiation, (A) PBS or (B) 500 µg/ml of the water-soluble extract of Pacific Krill were added to the cell cultures. (A and B) The Oil Red O staining of UCB TERT-21 cells induced to differentiate as adipocytes for 22 days. Scale bar, 50 µm. (C) RNA extracts from UCB TERT-21 cells induced to differentiate as adipocytes for 18 days were analyzed by qRT-PCR. Plotted values represent the mean value ± SD from four independent cultures. *p<0.05. The p value of C/EBPα was 0.059.
