Rats were reared from birth in litters of 4, 10, and 16 to achieve different growth rates. Pups in the litters of 16 had no access to rat chow until days 21-28, when chow was made available to one of the litters to induce catch-up growth. Total body water was estimated by tritiated water (TBWHTO) on days 7, 14, 21, and 28 and then calculated from desiccation (TBWdes). TBWHTO was consistently larger than TBWdes for all groups. Differences were 10.9-16.9% on day 7 and 3.7-6.4% on day 28. On day… CONTINUE READING
