Growth analysis in two lines of rats and their reciprocal F1 crosses under two nutritional environments. Heterosis for body weight and maturing rate.

Abstract

The heterotic effects for body weight during the early postweaning period and on the von Bertalanffy growth equation parameters in relation with the growth pattern as a whole were investigated in rats with caloric restriction (20%) and in controls with ad libitum feeding. Body weight at fixed ages, weight-age curves, asymptotic weight, mature size and… (More)
