Table 2 Body weight, BMI and AI of WNIN-mutant strain rats

From: Fatty acid desaturation index correlates with body mass and adiposity indices of obesity in Wistar NIN obese mutant rat strains WNIN/Ob and WNIN/GR-Ob

  WNIN/Ob WNIN/GR-Ob
  Lean Obese Lean Obese
Body weight (g) 314 ± 15 736 ± 22* 433 ± 13 593 ± 22*
BMI 5.4 ± 0.2 10.4 ± 0.3* 6.5 ± 0.1 9.3 ± 0.5*
AI (%) 3.1 ± 0.4 21.8 ± 1.6* 2.5 ± 0.3 16.6 ± 1.0*
  1. Values are means ± SE of 6 rats from each phenotypes. Lean and obese rats of each strain was compared and * denotes statistical significance at P ≤ 0.05 level (Student's t-test).
