Effects of TBS on AMPK, PPARγ, C/EBPα, and SREBP1 mRNA expression in epididymal white adipose tissue. Total protein and RNA were prepared from epididymal white adipose tissue (WAT), and the protein expression of (a) p-AMPK and the mRNA levels of (b) AMPK, (c) PPARγ, (d) C/EBPα, and (E) SREBP1 were determined by western blot analysis and quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR). Densitometric analysis was performed using ImageJ ver. 1.50i. The values represent the mean ± S.D. of three independent experiments. ##p < 0.01 and ### p < 0.001 vs. the control group; **p < 0.01 and ***p < 0.001 vs. HFD group
