Regulation of Apolipoprotein A-1 and Apolipoprotein B100 Genes by Thymoquinone Rich Fraction and Thymoquinone in HEPG2 Cells.

Thymoquinone (TQ) rich fraction (TQRF) extracted from Nigella sativa seeds using a supercritical fluid extraction technique was prepared. The regulatory effects of TQRF at 80 µg/mL and commercial TQ at 2 µg/mL on apolipoprotein B100 (Apo B100) and apolipoprotein A-1 (Apo A-1) genes in the presence o...
