Protein malnutrition affects the growth trajectories of the craniofacial skeleton in rats.

Abstract

To investigate the effects of protein malnutrition on a normal growth trajectory, we radiographed Rattus norvegicus from 22 d (weaning) and continuing past adult size. We took measurements from longitudinal radiographs of rats fed a control diet and littermates fed an isocaloric low protein experimental diet. A Gompertz model was fit to each individual rat… (More)
