  1. All values represent means ± SEMs
  2. Student’s unpaired t-test at W3 and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) at W13 were performed. n = 6 in each group
  3. W3 week 3, W13 week 13, NL normal litter, SL small litter, CUR curcumin, BAT brown adipose tissue, SAT subcutaneous adipose tissue, EAT epididymal adipose tissue, RAT retroperitoneal adipose tissue
  4. ap < 0.05 versus NL
  5. bp < 0.05 versus SL
