The relative gene expression of key factors involved fatty acid uptake in muscle. mRNA expression was performed by RT-PCR and β-actin was chosen as reference gene. aThe relative expression of FAT/CD36, FATP1, LPL and PPARγ in muscle, (b) The relative expression of FABP3 in muscle. a,bValues without common superscript letters differ significantly (P < 0.05). Low betaine and high betaine represent 1250 mg/kg and 2500 mg/kg betaine addition, respectively
