Body weight change over the life span and longevity for C57BL/6J mice and mutations which differ in maximal body weight.

Abstract

Body weights were obtained monthly for mutant groups with the C57BL/6J genetic background which differ in body weight (bg, c,J Ay, ob), and for a control group (C57BL/6J) (n = 16, N = 80). The mean longevity was significantly lower for all mutant groups compared with the mean longevity of the control group. Although obese mice (ob) had a shorter life span… (More)
