Body and adipose weights, adipokines levels.

Body and gonadal adipose tissue weights in grams (g) and serum leptin in micrograms per milliliter (µg/ml) and adiponectin levels in nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) of 3 and 6 month-old male wild type (WT), aromatase knockout (KO) and 2.5 µg/day 17β-estradiol-treated KO (KOE). Data are expressed as mean ± SD; n = 7–8 per group,*p<0.05 and **p<0.01 versus WT mice. #p<0.05, ##p<0.01###p<0.001 versus KO.
