Increased environmental temperature normalizes energy metabolism outputs between normal and Ames dwarf mice


Figure 1. Increased eT results in dwarf mice gaining weight without altering food consumption. (a) Body weight curve, (b) body weight at sacrifice, (c) percent increase in body weight from the time of temperature intervention, (d) food consumption per g body weight over a 24-hour period, (e) liver weight as a % of body weight (n = 6-8 except panel d where n = 4-7). N = normal, df/df = dwarf. The results of the Two-way ANOVA are reported as G (effect of genotype), T (effect of temperature), and GxT (interaction of genotype and temperature). Significant effects (P < 0.05) are in bold text. For panel A, a Two-way ANOVA with repeated measures was used to determine significance.
