[Growth rate and development in feed restricted female rats].


Age and weight were determined by direct measure in 30 feed-restricted female rats studied from weaning to first estrus, and compared to well fed controls. At the first estrus the average weight of well fed rats did not differ from that of the feed-restricted groups. Mean ages at vaginal opening and first estrus in the feed-restricted animals were however greater.
