Expression of NPC1 mRNA and protein levels in different fat depots and during differentiation. Expression of NPC1 in (A) mRNA in intact scWAT and omWAT of obese females (n=18), (B) mRNA in isolated adipocytes from obese and non-obese adults (n=13), (C) mRNA at day 4, 8, and 12 of differentiation in primary adipocyte cultures from female (n=12), (D) NPC1 protein in isolated adipocytes from obese (n=12) and non-obese individuals (n=12). Each panel shows four obese and four non-obese individuals. Values are presented as range (mean ±SD), *P<0.05, ***P<0.001.
