Table 4 Weights of fat depots and heart normalized to body weight in Lean and Fat mice

From: Obesity resistant mechanisms in the Lean polygenic mouse model as indicated by liver transcriptome and expression of selected genes in skeletal muscle

Parameter Lean mice* Fat mice* No. of individuals
BODY WEIGHT at 14 weeks
(g)
28.17 ± 1.15 41.76 ± 3.22* L = 23; F = 24
ABDOMINAL FAT    
ratio (mg/g body wt) 1.86 ± 069 9.97 ± 1.08a L = 43; F = 42
FEMORAL FAT    
ratio (mg/g body wt) 4.43 ± 1.2 17.67 ± 2.32 a L = 43; F = 42
EPIDIDYMAL FAT    
ratio (mg/g body wt) 3.34 ± 0.85 23.24 ± 3.12 a L = 43; F = 42
MESENTERIAL FAT    
ratio (mg/g body wt) 6.43 ± 1.26 22.33 ± 3.87 a L = 18; F = 15
HEART    
ratio (mg/g body wt) 6.13 ± 0.87 4.58 ± 0.69 a L = 43; F = 42
  1. *Results are expressed as means ± S.D. Except for mesenterial fat and heart, means were calculated based on weighed left-sided fat depot (L; Lean mice, F; Fat mice, a P < 0.001).
