Table 1 Body and fat pad weights and serum leptin for Obesity-Prone, Obesity-Resistant, and Low-Fat MMTV TGF-α mice

From: Effects of high-fat diet and/or body weight on mammary tumor leptin and apoptosis signaling pathways in MMTV-TGF-α mice

  Body weight (g) Fat pad weight (g) Serum leptin (ng/mL)
Obesity-Prone 40.49 ± 1.03a,b (n = 33) 3.512 ± 0.41b (n = 33) 10.56 ± 1.95b (n = 25)
Obesity-Resistant 28.57 ± 0.51c (n = 17) 0.786 ± 0.15c (n = 17) 3.61 ± 1.11c (n = 10)
Low-Fat 27.28 ± 0.56c (n = 20) 0.389 ± 0.05c (n = 20) 1.58 ± 0.15c (n = 16)
Overall significance P < 0.001 P < 0.001 P < 0.001
  1. aValues are mean ± standard error of the mean. Different superscripts (b and c) indicate significant difference by Newman-Keuls test following analysis of variance.
