MSC administration enhances hepatic expression of UCP-2 after 70% hepatectomy in obese mice. Hepatic mRNA levels of (a) mitochondrial (CPT-1, CYP2E1, and UCP-2) and (b) microsomal (ACO, CYP4a10, CYP4a14) lipid peroxidation factors; quantified by RT-qPCR, 2 days post-Hpx. Data are presented as mean ± SEM (n = 8), a p < 0.05 vs. normal pre-Hpx; b p < 0.05 vs. normal + Vh; c p < 0.05 vs. obese pre-Hpx and d p < 0.05 vs. obese + Vh
