α-Mangostin is a major compound found in mangosteen fruit hull and it has been reported to have wide range of pharmacological activities. The current study seeks to evaluate the in vitro activities of α-mangostin on adipocyte differentiation, glucose uptake and related gene expressions. The inhibitory effect of the compoundon lipid accumulation..
