Table 6 Effects of CTS on plasma ALT and AST activities in mice fed with HFD

From: Crude triterpenoid saponins from Ilex latifolia (Da Ye Dong Qing) ameliorate lipid accumulation by inhibiting SREBP expression via activation of AMPK in a non-alcoholic fatty liver disease model

Parameter Control HFD HFD + Simvastatin HFD + CTS-100 HFD + CTS-200
ALT (KAIU/L) 43.15 ± 3.98 62.61 ± 14.81## 51.34 ± 15.81 50.94 ± 15.95** 40.74 ± 7.90**

  1. Values were expressed as the mean ± SD (n = 10). # P < 0.05, ## P < 0.01, HFD vs. control. P < 0.05, P < 0.01, HFD vs. simvastatin treatment. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, HFD vs. CTS treatment.
