Ophiocordyceps formosana upregulated adiponectin expressions in plasma and adipose tissues. a The levels of plasma adiponectin in different STZ-induced treated groups. b Immunohistochemical staining for adiponectin in adipose tissues. c The adiponectin-positive area of each treated group was quantified by Image J. Scale bar = 50 mm, under a 400x microscope. One-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s post hoc test was performed for multiple comparisons. Mean in a row with different superscripts is significantly different (p ≤ 0.05). Values are mean ± SEM, n = 6 in control group and n = 8 in all STZ-treated groups
