Table 2 Body mass and TAT mass at study onset and end

From: Ovariectomy and overeating palatable, energy-dense food increase subcutaneous adipose tissue more than intra-abdominal adipose tissue in rats

  1. Initial (d 0) and final (d 41) body mass (BM) and total adipose tissue (TAT) mass, determined with microCT, of chow- and Ensure-fed intact rats (CH-Intact and EN-Intact), ovariectomized rats (CH-OVX and EN-OVX), and estradiol-treated ovariectomized rats (CH-OVX+E2 and EN-OVX+E2), means ± SEM. Initial and final levels in CH-Intact rats were compared with t-tests to characterize normal maturational changes. Group differences on d 41 were analyzed by planned comparisons, with experiment-wide significance P < 0.05, as described in the text.
  2. #Different from d 0, P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01, ###P < 0.001;
  3. *Different from CH-Intact;
  4. +OVX different from OVX+E2, same diet group;
  5. ϕEN-OVX different from EN-Intact.
