Data on chow, liver tissue and mitochondrial fatty acid compositions as well as mitochondrial proteome changes after feeding mice a western diet for 6-24 weeks

Data Brief. 2017 Sep 18;15:163-169. doi: 10.1016/j.dib.2017.09.019. eCollection 2017 Dec.


The data presented in this article describe the fatty acid composition of chow, liver tissue and isolated liver mitochondria from mice fed for 6-24 weeks with a high caloric western diet (WD) in comparison to control diet (normal diet, ND). The fatty acid composition was measured via gas chromatography flame ionization detection (GC-FID). Moreover, WD-induced mitochondrial protein changes are presented in this work and were analyzed by mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). For further interpretation and discussion of the presented data please refer to the research article entitled "Mitochondrial adaptation in steatotic mice" (Einer et al., 2017) [1].
