Lipid profile of aorta in high fat diet fed quails and the effects of AREs. Four weeks old male quails were fed with high fat diet (1 % cholesterol and 14 % pork oil, w/w) for ten weeks and then aorta were collected, lipids were extracted from homogenized aorta tissue with 1,4-dioxane and the lipid contents were assessed with an automatic biochemical analyzer (Beckman AU5400, Brea, CA, US) . HF: high fat diet group; Sim: simvastatin group. a: statistically different from control group. b: statistically different from high fat diet group. c: statistically different from simvastatin group. a Total cholesterol content in aorta for AAE treated animals (N = 10). d: statistically different from AAE 0.75 g/kg group. e: statistically different from AAE 1.5 g/kg group. b Total cholesterol content in aorta for AEE, ACE and AFE treated animals (N = 10). d: statistically different from AFE 150 mg/kg group. c Triacylglycerol content in aorta for AAE treated animals (N = 10). d: statistically different from AAE 0.75 g/kg group. e: statistically different from AAE 1.5 g/kg group. d Triacylglycerol content in aorta for AEE, ACE and AFE treated animals (N = 10). d: statistically different from ACE 100 mg/kg group. e: statistically different from AFE 150 mg/kg group. e LDL content in aorta for AAE treated animals (N = 10). d: statistically different from AWE 0.75 g/kg group. e: statistically different from AWE 1.5 g/kg group. f LDL content in aorta for AEE, ACE and AFE treated animals (N = 10). d: statistically different from AFE 150 mg/kg group
