Table 3 Physical activity and oxygen uptake

From: Feeding butter with elevated content of trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid to obese-prone rats impairs glucose and insulin tolerance

  1. Physical activity and oxygen uptake in Zucker rats fed various diets for 8 weeks. Data are presented as mean plus/minus standard error. n = 8-10 per group. Lower case letters are used to compare groups in the light phase, upper case letter are used to compare groups in the dark phase, and an asterisk denotes a significant difference between light and dark phases. Groups which share a letter are not statistically different. Statistical significance accepted at p < 0.05. LF low fat; VO 2 oxygen uptake; SARA subacute rumen acidosis
