  1. Values are mean ± SEM. * indicates statistically significantly different from the respective control (P < 0.05) based on Student’s t test. Samples were obtained over an 18-hour time period. In some cases the concentration was still elevated at 18 hrs. The concentration from the 18-hour time point was extrapolated to the fasting baseline to represent the 24-hour time point. Those data are presented as “extrapolated” 24-hour data.
