Growth allometry of organs, muscles and bones in mice from lines divergently selected on the basis of plasma insulin-like growth factor-I.


Growth allometry was examined over the range 6 to 112 days of age in male and female mice from lines selected for low (L) or high (H) plasma concentrations of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I). Plasma IGF-I concentrations were greater in the H line than in L line mice from 28 days of age. H line mice also had greater liveweights and weights of the heart… (More)
