Abstract

In order to discover the effect of CLA on the body fat size and serum cytokine levels, four groups of male mice were fed diets containing either 1% linoleic acid (LA) or conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) with or without 0.2% sesamin for 8 weeks. The weight gain and feed efficiency were significantly lower in the CLA groups. CLA significantly reduced relative weights (g/100 g body weight) of epididymal and perirenal adipose tissues, in particular the former. Concentrations of serum TNF-α and leptin were significantly reduced by dietary CLA. Sesamin did not show additional effects in all of these parameters. There was a positive correlation between cytokine production and body-fat reducing potential of CLA. These results indicated that mice appeared to be a hyperresponder to dietary CLA insofar as the reduction of body fat size is concerned.
