Suppressed alteration of gastric morphology in HFD-fed mice devoid of leptin signaling. Representative H&E-sections of the gastric mucosa from WT, ob/ob and db/db mice fed CD or HFD for 1 (a) and 3 weeks (b). Each value in the images indicates the body weight of the mouse from which the gastric mucosa was obtained and stained with H&E-stain. c Measurement of mucosal height in the gastric fundus of WT, ob/ob and db/db mice at 1 and 3 weeks and of WT mice at 20 weeks after feeding. The values represent the means ± SD of 4 mice. The results were analyzed by the Kruskal-Wallis test. * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01
