Figure 1: Effect of TM and EA on glucose uptake. Differentiated cells were serum starved for 2 hours and incubated with varying concentrations TM or EA for 30 minutes. Graph showing increase in glucose uptake upon treatment with different concentrations of TM in 3T3-L1 adipocytes (A). Graph showing concentration dependent increase in glucose uptake with EA in 3T3-L1 cells (B) and C2C12 cells (C). Cells incubated with vehicle (0.1% DMSO) alone were used to measure the basal rate of glucose uptake and 50 nM insulin as positive control in both cell types. Data shown are fold increase in glucose uptake compared to the basal. Values are shown as the mean ± S.D. of three different experiments carried out in duplicates. *P<0.05 vs. unstimulated cells.
