Regional fat pad growth and cellularity in obese zucker rats: modulation by caloric restriction.


OBJECTIVE To investigate, in young obese male Zucker rats, the effects of chronic food restriction and subsequent refeeding on: 1). parameters of nonadipose and adipose growth, 2). regional adipose depot cellularity [fat cell volume (FCV) and number], and 3). circulating leptin levels. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES Obese (fa/fa) and lean (Fa/?) male… (More)
