  1. aLivers, kidneys, and blood were collected from C57BKS and db/db mice at 9 weeks of age. (*) indicates values significantly different from control (p ≤ 0.05). All weights expressed in grams ± SEM. Asterisk (*) represents statistically significant difference of parameters between C57BKS and db/db mice (p≤0.05).
