Details

The data come from a study of the effects of five dietary regimens with different fatty acid compositions on liver lipids and hepatic gene expression in wild-type and PPAR-alpha-deficient mice (Martin et al., 2007).

There were 5 replicates per genotype and diet combination.

There are two design variables: (i) genotype, a factor with two levels: wild-type (wt) and PPAR-alpha-deficient (ppar), and (ii) diet, a factor with five levels. The oils used for experimental diet preparation were: corn and colza oils (50/50) for a reference diet (ref); hydrogenated coconut oil for a saturated fatty acid diet (coc); sunflower oil for an Omega6 fatty acid-rich diet (sun); linseed oil for an Omega3-rich diet (lin); and corn/colza/enriched (43/43/14) fish oils (fish).

There are 141 response variables: (i) the log-expression levels of 120 genes measured in liver cells, and (ii) the concentrations (in percentages) of 21 hepatic fatty acids measured by gas chromatography.
