Table 5 Plasma concentrations of glucose, NEFA, insulinƚ and leptin in male and female offspring at 3 and 6 weeks of age

From: Exposure to maternal cafeteria diets during the suckling period has greater effects on fat deposition and Sterol Regulatory Element Binding Protein-1c (SREBP-1c) gene expression in rodent offspring compared to exposure before birth
