Figure 1: IUGR and DHA-IUGR body weight and adipose deposition. (a) IUGR decreased body weights of male and female adolescent day 21 rats. DHA-IUGR increased male body weight and normalized female body weight compared to controls. (b) Quantification of MRI images. IUGR increased SAT and VAT in male rats. DHA-IUGR normalized SAT and VAT levels in male rats. Sat and VAT deposition was not affected by IUGR or DHA-IUGR in female rats. Results are IUGR (white bars) or DHA-IUGR (black bars) relative to sex-matched controls (represented by the dotted line). Errors are SEM. SAT is subcutaneous adipose tissue, VAT is visceral adipose tissue, * .
