Statistically significant differences: * p <0.05; ** p <0.01; *** p <0.001; (One-way ANOVA) CON = control adult mice, fed ad libitum; F24, F48 and F72 = adult mice fasted for 24, 48 and 72 h, respectively; R12, R24, R48 and R72 = adult mice fasted for 72 h and subsequent fed again for 12, 24, 48 and 72 h, respectively (n = 6–8 animals in each group)
