Figure 3

Effect of bitter melon juice on cellular triglyceride mass. Cellular triglyceride levels were reduced in (A) differentiating preadipocytes treated with varying concentrations of BMJ during differentiation and (B) adipocytes treated with varying concentrations of BMJ for 24 and 48 h. Figure 3C depicts the increased release of glycerol into the media, when adipocytes were treated with varying concentration of BMJ (0.5% to 2%, v/v) for 24 and 48 h. Values represent the mean ± SE (n = 6) of three independent experiments conducted in duplicate. a, b, c, dMean values with common letters do not differ (p < 0.05).
