Body Composition (DEXA) Data for Bbx (MAEZ)

Standard Protocol - significant parameters
DEXA (week 14) [Mice were fed on High Fat Diet (21.4% crude fat content, Western RD, 829100, Special Diets Services) from 4 weeks of age]: Mice are anaesthetised and imaged on a dual energy X-ray absorptiometry machine (Lunar PIXImus II). This generates an image of the entire mouse and provides bone mineral and body composition data.
