Gene expression data from liver of rat fed a high-fat diet and high-fructose water without/with Eucommia ulmoides leaves

ABSTRACT: To investigate effects of intake of Eucommia ulmoides leaves on hyperlipidemia, we performed gene expression profiling on rat liver by microarray analysis. Microarray analysis revealed that Eucommia ulmoides leaves up-regulated the gene expression involved in alpha-, beta-, and omega-oxidation of fatty acids, mainly relating to peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor signaling pathway. Rats were fed a high-fat diet and high-fructose water without/with orally administration of Eucommia ulmoides leaves for 5 weeks. Livers were taken for RNA extraction and hybridization on Agilent microarrays.

BACKGROUND: Tea made from Eucommia ulmoides leaves is widely consumed as a health food, since recent studies have revealed various pharmacological effects of the tea, e.g. a hypotriglyceridaemic effect. This study was conducted to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the plasma triglyceride-lowering effect of E. ulmoides leaves. RESULTS: Rats were divided into four groups: a normal group, a group fed a high-fat/high-fructose diet (untreated group) and two groups fed a high-fat/high-fructose diet  ...[more]
