From: Pharmacological doses of niacin stimulate the expression of genes involved in carnitine uptake and biosynthesis and improve the carnitine status of obese Zucker rats

Figure 2

Relative protein level of OCTN2 in M. gastrocnemius of lean rats (Lean), obese Zucker rats fed a control diet (Obese Control) or obese Zucker rats fed a diet supplemented with 780 mg niacin/kg diet (Obese Niacin) for 4 wk. (A) Bars represent means ± SEM, n = 10/group. Means without a common letter differ, P < 0.05. (B) Representative immunoblots specific to OCTN2 and GAPDH as internal control are shown for one animal per group; immunoblots for the other animals revealed similar results.
