Abstract

[Introduction]: The cause for obesity, a disturbance in energy balance, is frequently assigned to overeating of energy rich diets and low physical activity. We utilized two inbred mouse strains, SWR/J and AKR/J, to scrutinize the contribution of activity behaviour to the etiology of obesity: SWR/J are resistant to diet-induced obesity (DIO) and AKR/J are susceptible.
