Sex-dependent mRNA expression of selected genes from metabolic pathways. mRNA expression levels of selected genes for hepatic amino acid, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism were quantified in male and female rat liver by real-time PCR and normalized to the housekeeping gene Arbp (n = 4 rats/group). Data are represented as means ± SEM, and asterisks indicate significant differences compared to corresponding male group as determined by Student's t-test.
