Leptin gene expression by quantitative reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction analysis and leptin protein concentration by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in quadricep muscles. a Relative leptin gene expression in quadricep muscles extracted from young (10 weeks) and aged (48 weeks) rats. b Leptin protein concentration in quadriceps muscles from young (10 weeks) and aged (48 weeks) rats. Data indicate mean ± SE (n = 10). * p < 0.05, between young and aged groups
