The main objective of the present study was to determine the influence of acute deficits of protein and energy on the blood serum level of interferon-gamma, a signature type 1 polarising inflammatory cytokine. In two 14 d experiments, male and female C57BL/6J mice, initial age 19 d, consumed a complete purified diet ad libitum or in restricted daily quantities, or had free access to an isoenergetic purified low-protein diet. A zero-time control group (age 19 d) was included in the second… CONTINUE READING
