|Table 4: Identification of differentially expressed metabolites in the plasma that may account for the discrimination between normal and model rats.|

: content increased; ↓: content decreased.
dFold change was calculated as the ratio of the mean metabolite levels between two groups. A positive value of fold change indicates a relatively higher concentration of metabolites, while a negative value of fold change indicates a relatively lower concentration of metabolites in model rats as compared to normal rats.
e values were calculated from two-tailed Mann-Whitney test with a threshold of 0.05.
