Additional file 5: of Fetuin-A levels are increased in the adipose tissue of diabetic obese humans but not in circulation

Figure S2. Adiponectin levels and effect of exercise on the subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) of obese subjects with and without diabetes. Immunofluorescence analysis of adiponectin expression in SAT from obese subjects with and without diabetes before and after a 3-month physical exercise intervention (n = 10 for each group). Data were quantified as detailed in the Materials and Methods section. The p value was determined using Mann–Whitney test for comparisons between the diabetes and non-diabetes groups and using a paired t-test for intragroup comparisons before and after exercise. * p < 0.05 between diabetes and non-diabetes groups and # p < 0.05 between before and after exercise.
