Weights of the adrenal glands (a) and plasma levels of corticosterone (b) of male and female CRF-OE mice and WT littermates. Data are mean ± SEM. The number of mice/group is indicated at the bottom of each bar. *P < 0.05 vs. WT mice of the same sex (vs. non-fasted WT in graph c); # P < 0.05 vs. non-fasted male WT mice, and + P < 0.05 vs. male mice of the same genotype. NF non-fasted. Correlation between plasma corticosterone levels and weights of adrenal glands (c), corticosterone levels and perigonadal fat (d), and weights of adrenal glands and perigonadal fat (e)
