Sex-dependent degree of hepatic AMP kinase-phosphorylation. The ratio between phosphorylated (p-AMPK-Thr172) and total AMPK was determined in whole-cell lysates by immunoblotting (upper section) and quantified by densitometry analysis (lower section). Data are represented as means ± SEM, and the asterisk indicates significant difference compared to corresponding male group as determined by Student's t-test.
