According to previous studies, a possible role of fat
accumulation with aging is suspected. Thus, the specific
goals of this study were 1) to assess simultaneously
whole body subcutaneous and visceral fat, and liver fat
on 3 different age groups of mice, and 2) to investigate
an age-related association with body fat content.
Amongst visceral, subcutaneous and liver fat, and
relative ratios between visceral and subcutaneous fat (vfat/subfat),
the vfat/subfat ratios were linearly correlated (P<0.05)
with aging for a wider span (8-80 weeks) than individual
