Correlated responses to selection for rapid 3 to 6-wk postweaning gain in male mice were estimated for five fat depots weighed at specific degrees of maturity in body weight (37.5, 50.0, 62.5, 75, 87.5 and 100%). Fat pads measured were from regions of the subcutaneous hindlimb, subcutaneous forelimb, epididymides, mesentery and kidneys. At the same degree of maturity, selected mice (M16) were older (P less than .01) than controls (ICR). M16 had heavier (P less than .01) fat depots than ICR for… CONTINUE READING
