Effects on growth and endocrine status of maintaining obese and lean Zucker rats at 22 degrees C and 30 degrees C from weaning.


Lean and genetically obese Zucker rats were maintained from 21 to 34 days of age at an ambient temperature of 22 degrees C or 30 degrees C. Maintenance at 30 degrees C normalised the lower rectal temperature of obese rats. At 30 degrees C obese rats reduced their food intake compared with obese animals at 22 degrees C but they were still hyperphagic… (More)
