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


Figure 4. Increased eT diminished non-shivering thermogenesis and energy metabolism in dwarf mice. (a) Gene expression in brown adipose tissue, (b) respiratory quotient, and (c) rate of oxygen consumption (n = 5-8). N = normal, df/df = dwarf, RQ = respiratory quotient, VO2 = rate of oxygen consumption. 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.
