Effect of Sod2- and Cat-MSCs on the gene expression of different tissues from DIO mice fed a 45% HFD and 60% HFD. Fat depots: a omental, b pericardial, and c subcutaneous. d Heart. Fat tissues and organs were harvested at week 4 post-MSC transplantation. mRNA expression of UCP1 was predominantly increased in fat depots (ac, eg) and heart (d, h). Gene expression was normalized to 18S (*p < 0.05; **p < 0.01), and values are relative to control (Null-MSCs)
