Figure 3: Effect of a 24 h fast on the inflammatory status of WAT following 10 or 100 acute inescapable tail shocks. Fed (FED □) or fasted (FASTED ■) rats were exposed to 0 (control condition), 10, or 100 acute, inescapable tail shocks (IS) and immediately sacrificed and subcutaneous, intraperitoneal, and visceral WAT were collected. Shown is the ratio of the mean (+SEM) concentration of (a) TNF-α/IL-10 and (b) IL-1β/IL-10, (0IS versus 10 or 100IS within WAT compartment);   (main effect of FED versus FASTED within WAT compartment).
