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 fat mass.
