METHODS AND RESULTS We studied phenotypic traits: of each strain--BN/K, DA/K and WOKW--10 male rats were studied for body weight and(More)
A high-fat diet (HFD) has been recognized as a risk factor for diseases such as dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, obesity, and osteoporosis.

Two breeding pairs were fed a(More)
