Adipose tissue function is not affected by macrophage CD40 deficiency.

<p><b>(A)</b> Adipocyte size after 13 weeks of dietary intervention. <b>(B)</b> Plasma triglycerides (TG). <b>(C)</b> Plasma total cholesterol levels. <b>(D)</b> plasma adiponectin levels are increased in lean macrophage CD40 deficient mice but are not different in obese mice. <b>(E)</b> Plasma leptin levels. <b>(F)</b> mRNA expression of adiponectin, leptin, PPARγ and insulin receptor (IR) in EpAT, (n = 6–9 mice/group). Data is presented as mean ± SEM. *p<0.05, as determined by non-parametric Mann Whitney test.</p>
