Prenatal and postnatal effects in mouse lines selected for body weight and litter size: performance of postnatal dams and growth of progeny



Prenatal and postnatal effects in mouse lines selected for body weight and litter size: performance of postnatal dams and growth of progeny



Journal of Animal Science 59(4): 896-907



A crossfostering experiment that included litters standardised for size (8 and 16) was performed to determine line differences in postpartum maternal performance of dams and prenatal and postnatal effects on growth of young. Lines evaluated were: BW (selected for increased 6-wk body weight), LS (selected for increased litter size at birth), LW (selected for increased litter size and decreased 6-wk body weight), and K, selected at random.
