Table 6 Plasma total cholesterol levels* and triglyceride levels** in SUS and RES quail fed regular or cholesterol diets

From: Differential mRNA expression of seven genes involved in cholesterol metabolism and transport in the liver of atherosclerosis-susceptible and -resistant Japanese quail strains

Diet SUS RES
Total cholesterol (mmol/L) Triglycerides (mmol/L) Total cholesterol (mmol/L) Triglycerides (mmol/L)
Regular 7.45 ± 2.58 c 0.98 ± 0.32 B 6.15 ± 3.90 c 1.18 ± 0.48 B
