Adipocyte differentiation of preadipocytes isolated from IAAT and SCAT. a, b Preadipocytes from IFPs, SPFPs, and SCATs of OA patients (n = 11) were cultured for 14 days in adipogenic medium before the evaluation of adipocyte differentiation by oil red O staining (a) and staining quantification (b). ce Relative mRNA expression of C/EBPα (c), PPARγ (d), and Pref-1 (e) by IFP and SPFP preadipocytes compared to the corresponding SCAT preadipocytes from OA patients (n = 12–15). The relative mRNA expression was normalized to that of 18S RNA. Bars indicate the mean expression levels
