Figure 2: Effect of YBF on microscopic structure, oxidative stress, and inflammation in adipose tissue. (A) Histology of eWAT depicting white adipocytes; (B) mean of white adipocyte size; (C) histology of iBAT depicting brown adipocytes; (D) mean of white adipocyte size; (E) MDA level in WAT; (F) catalase activity in WAT; (G) mRNA expression of IL-6 in WAT. The tissues in A and C were stained with hematoxylin-eosin. Scale bars in A and C: 20 µm. Data are presented as mean ± SEM. The different lowercase letters above the bars indicate statistical differences (P < 0.05);. YBF, Yam bean fiber; ND, normal diet; HFD, high-fat diet; eWAT, epididymal white adipose tissue; iBAT, interscapular brown adipose tissue; MDA, malondialdehyde; IL-6, interleukin-6.
