For the Notch3 gene transfectant, the complete and the intracellular NOTCH3 (NICD3) protein signals are shown. Finally, for the Notch 4 gene transfectant, the complete and the intracellular NOTCH4 (NICD4) protein signals are shown. ( E ) qRT-PCR analysis of the relative aP2 and Pparg mRNA expression levels in differentiated stable Notch1 gene transfectant (L1-N1D), stable Notch2 gene transfectant (L1-N2D), stable Notch3 gene transfectant (L1-N3D), and stable gene Notch4 transfectant (L1-N4D). Data from qRT-PCR assays were previously normalized to P0 ). The fold activation or inhibition was calculated relative to the seven-day differentiated non-transfected or empty-vector-transfected cells, which was set arbitrarily at 1. Data are shown as the mean ± SD of at least three biological assays performed in triplicate. The statistical significance calculated by Student’s t-tests is indicated (*p ≤ 0.05, **p ≤ 0.01, ***p ≤ 0.001).
