Figure 4: Effect of betulinic acid chalcone on lipid metabolism-associated genes. The adipocytes were treated with dimethyl sulfoxide (control), rosiglitazone, and 2-, 4-, 8-, and 16-μM betulinic acid chalcone. Reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction assay was employed for analysis of fatty acid synthase, CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein-α, adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein 2, and HMG-CoA mRNA expression in adipocytes. Data are accessible as the means ± standard deviation (n = 6) (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, and ***P < 0.001 vs. control group)
