Table 7 Plasma LDL levels* (N = 51; P < 0.01) and HDL levels)** (N = 56; P < 0.028) 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
LDL (mmol/L) HDL (mmol/L) LDL (mmol/L) HDL (mmol/L)
Regular 1.75 ± 2.03 c 5.25 ± 0.21 A 1.64 ± 3.07 c 3.96 ± 0.32 B
Cholesterol 32.82 ± 1.73 a 4.81 ± 0.16 AB 18.64 ± 3.32 b 4.75 ± 0.35 B
  1. *plasma LDL means followed by different lower case letters are significantly different by Tukey’s HSD; **plasma HDL means followed by different capital letters are significantly different by Tukey’s HSD.
