The aim of the present study is to evaluate whether circadian locomotor activity, and the daily profile of plasma parameters related to metabolic syndrome (nutrients: glucose and triacylglycerides, and hormones: insulin and leptin), differ between male and female Neotomodon alstoni mice, both lean and obese. Young adult animals were captured in the field and kept at the laboratory animal facility. After 6 to 7 months feeding the animals ad libitum with a regular diet for laboratory rodents, 50… CONTINUE READING
