The effect of GL extracts on skeletal muscles AdipoR1 expression and AMPK phosphorylation in rats. The relative levels of AdipoR1 mRNA transcripts were determined by RT-PCR, and the levels of total AMKP expression and phosphorylation in the muscles of individual rats were characterized by Western blot assays. Data are representative images or expressed as the mean ± S.D. of individual groups of rats (n = 4 per group). (A) RT-PCR analysis of the AdipoR1 mRNA transcripts and (B and C) Western blot analysis of AMKP expression and phosphorylation. * p < 0.05 vs. the control group.
