The steatosis incidence correlates with Tbg overexpression. Real-time quantitative expression analysis of key genes in liver: CD36, Lpl and Thrsp code for proteins involved in fatty acid metabolism; Tbg and Dlg3 are X-linked genes. Tbg presented transcriptional upregulation correlating with the incidence of hepatic steatosis. Gene expression was normalized to Gapdh levels. Expression levels were corrected against expression measured in control littermate liver, which was defined as 1. The error bars represent SEM.
