Body weights at the end of the experiment in control-fed and dietary energy-restricted mice that were sham operated or adrenalectomized

Sencar mice were adrenalectomized and fed the diets described in “Materials and Methods” for 15 weeks. Significant differences by two-sample t test, a > b (P < 0.001) are shown.
