Metformin prolongs lifespan through remodeling the energy distribution strategy in silkworm, Bombyx mori

Figure 2. Effects of metformin on larval weight, fecundity, pupal weight, cocoon weight, and cocoon-shell ratio. (A-A’) Larval weights measured daily from L3D1 to L5D6. Bars and symbols depict the mean + SEM, n=5. (B) Fecundity. Bars depict the mean + SEM, n=6. (C) Female pupal weight, (D) cocoon weight, and (E) cocoon-shell ratio. Horizontal bars depict the mean ± SEM, n=61. (F) Male pupal weight, (G) cocoon weight, and (H) cocoon-shell ratio. Horizontal bars depict the mean ± SEM, n=75.
