Protein expression of liver AMPK. Liver tissues were obtained from the Zucker lean rats (ZL), vehicle-treated ZDF rats (V) and metformin-treated ZDF rats (Met) after 6-month treatment. Equal amounts of liver lysates (100 μg) were subjected to SDS-PAGE to immunoblot for AMPK and phosphorylated-AMPK (p-AMPK). Metformin-treated rats showed activation of AMPK. Data are mean ± SD, *p < 0.05, V versus ZL; #p < 0.05, Met versus V
