BEX1 inhibits PPARG in LPCs and liver tissues in response to CDE diet. a Real-time PCR analysis of Pparg mRNA level in LPCs from WT and Bex1−/− mice (mean ± SEM, n = 6, **P < 0.01, Mann–Whitney U test). b Immunoblotting analysis of PPARG protein level in LPCs from WT and Bex1−/− mice. Quantifying densitometry of bands using ImageJ software (mean ± SEM, n = 4, *P < 0.05, Mann–Whitney U test). c Immunoblotting analysis of PPARG protein level in Vector and Bex1 LEPCs. Quantifying densitometry of bands using ImageJ software (mean ± SEM, n = 4, *P < 0.05, Mann–Whitney U test). d Real-time PCR analysis of Pparg expression in liver tissues of 3-week chow and CDE diet-fed WT and Bex1−/− mice (mean ± SEM, n = 4–5, *P < 0.05, Mann–Whitney U test). e Immunoblotting analysis of PPARG protein level in liver tissues of 3-week chow and CDE diet-fed WT and Bex1−/− mice. Quantifying densitometry of bands using ImageJ software (mean ± SEM, n = 4, *P < 0.05, Mann–Whitney U test). f Real-time PCR analysis of Pparg and Epcam expression in liver tissues of 3-week CDE diet-fed WT mice with DMSO or rosiglitazone treatment (mean ± SEM, n = 5, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, Mann–Whitney U test). g Flow cytometry analysis of percentage of EPCAM+CD45 LPCs in NPCs in livers of 3-week-old CDE diet-fed WT mice with DMSO or rosiglitazone treatment (mean ± SEM, n = 5, **P < 0.01, Mann–Whitney U test). BEX1 brain-expressed X-linked 1, CDE choline-deficient, ethionine-supplemented, DMSO dimethyl sulphoxide, EpCAM epithelial cell adhesion molecule, GAPDH glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase, LPC liver progenitor cell, PPARG peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma, WT wild-type
