|Rhythmic expression of clock genes (hPer2, hBmal1 and hCry1) in human subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissue. (A) hPer2, (B) hBmal1 and (C) hCry1. Adipose depots were isolated at 6-h intervals over the course of the day from adipose tissue cultures (time at 0, 6, 12 and 18 h). Results are presented relative to the lowest basal relative expression for each gene.|
Data are reported as means ± standard error of the mean (SEM). SEM of differences in cycle threshold are represented in parenthesis.
