Table 2 Intracellular L-carnitine Levels

From: L-carnitine and PPARα-agonist fenofibrate are involved in the regulation of Carnitine Acetyltransferase (CrAT) mRNA levels in murine liver cells

  Intracellular L-carnitine concentration (μM) SD p-value
(A) TIB73 in DMEM + 10%FCS 973 ±52 -
(B) TIB73 in DMEM + dia.FCS 265 ±51 p < 0.001
(C)TIB73 in DMEM + dia.FCS +80 μM L-carnitine 711 ±72 p < 0.001
  1. Measurements of intracellular L-carnitine concentrations of TIB73 cells under physiological conditions (A), L-carnitine deficiency (B) and supplementation (C). For statistical analysis conditions A and B were compared as well as conditions B and C.
  2. (Values represent means, n = 3; (A) vs. (B) p < 0.001 and (B) vs. (C) p < 0.001).
