  1. Expression levels of adipogenic markers [GLUT4 protein and FABP4 protein] were increased in vitamin D plus BPA (10 nM) group, compared to control and concentration of 0.1 nM vitamin D plus BPA. In addition, protein expression of VDR and ERβ in both concentrations of vitamin D plus BPA vs. control was significantly increased
  2. FABP4 fatty acid binding proteins-4, GLUT4 glucose transporter-4, VDR vitamin D receptor, ERβ estrogen receptor beta
  3. *Kruskal–Wallis test was used and Mean values were significantly different between the groups (P < 0.05)
  4. ang/mg total protein
