Table 1 Metabolic data of obese and non-obese individuals

From: Gene expression of the zinc transporter ZIP14 (SLC39a14) is affected by weight loss and metabolic status and associates with PPARγ in human adipose tissue and 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes

  1. Anthropometric data, lipid profiles, and glucose homeostasis in blood from obese individuals before and after weight loss and from non-obese controls. Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation (n= 14 per group). **, P < 0.01; ***, P < 0.001 compared with obese individuals before weight loss. BMI, body mass index; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; HOMA, homeostasis model assessment; LDL, low-density lipoprotein
