Final body weights, summed organ weights, carcass weights, fat pad weights, and IGF-I levels for ad libitum-fed, weight-cycled, and pair-fed TGF-α/Lep+Lepob female micea

Carcass weightb (g)Fat pad weightc (g)IGF-Id (ng/ml)
Ad libitum-fed (n = 30)26.13 ± 1.241.221 ± 0.194586.9 ± 48.6
Weight-cycled (n = 30)24.96 ± 1.031.129 ± 0.122553.6 ± 37.5
Pair-fed (n = 33)24.32 ± 0.8131.105 ± 0.144467.7 ± 22.5
  • a Values are means ± SE.

  • b Carcass weight equals body weight minus summed organ weights and weight of MTs or other tumors.

  • c Fat pad weight equals combined retroperitoneal and parametrial fat pads.

  • d For IGF-I, n = 23/group; P < 0.07.
