Synthesis of mRNA was studied in the spleen and thymus of rats that had been exposed to undernutrition early in life. To achieve this objective, lactating females were separated into two groups 1 wk after they gave birth to offspring. These control and experimental dams suckled 8-11 and 13-16 pups, respectively, for a period of 2 wk. The young of both… CONTINUE READING
