Abstract

We investigated whether early postnatal over-nutrition affects normal course of skin wound healing. To induce over-nutrition the litter size was adjusted on the first day after birth to four pups/nest (small litters). In parallel, as a control, normal nests of 10 pups/nest (normal litters) were...

Abstract

Maternal undernutrition results in elevated blood pressure (BP) and endothelial dysfunction in adult offspring. However, few studies have investigated interventions during early life to ameliorate the programming of hypertension and vascular disorders. We have utilised a model of maternal...

Abstract

1220 rat embryos were recovered from non-superovulated donors of electrophoretic mtDNA types A and B. The number and developmental stage of embryos did not differ between donors of the 2 mtDNA types. Pregnancy rate after transfer of embryos to recipients did not differ significantly between mtDNA...

Abstract

50 female rats were given drinking water with 12 msmallcap˜M lead acetate for 8 weeks prior to mating and during gestation (Pb-G). 50 controls were given drinking water with sodium acetate (12 msmallcap˜M). A group of 5 rats were exposed to Pb during gestation and lactation (Pb-L). Neonates were...

Abstract

The effect of nutrient availability during gestation and early-life (pre-weaning) and subsequent dietary intake (post-weaning) on reproductive and lactation performance was investigated in a 3-generation crossover study. Female rat pups, whose mothers had been allowed free-access to food or were...

Abstract

During a period of 17 months, a breeding colony of Wistar rats was subjected to monogamous mating or to harem mating with crossfostering. Litter size at birth averaged 7.90 and 9.34 for monogamous and harem matings resp. (P<0.01), and the av. preweaning mortality was 6.90 and 2.47% (P<0....

Abstract

Although obese (C57B1/6J, ob/ob) rats have greater avidity for non-nutritive sucking than lean rats as early as 15 days old, previous research has not found differences in milk intake between ob/ob and lean mice during the preweaning period. Because ob/ob young suck longer than lean rats, their...
