The weight difference between large, small and unselected strains of mice were maintained when blastocysts of each genotype were transferred to unselected control recipients, suggesting that foetal genotype was an important factor in determining prenatal body size. The asynchronous transfer of large, small and unselected embryos resulted in a highly significant (P less than 0-001) elevation of foetal weight compared with synchronously transferred groups, genetically small mice attaining a… CONTINUE READING
