Evaluate the effect of material DDT exposure on response to the ß3 adrenoceptor
agonist, CL 316,243.
Summary Data Summary
Investigator La Merrill, Michele
Description While less of a problem in the USA, exposure to the pesticide
4,4'-dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) due to environmental contamination
and in regions where DDT continues to be used extensively for malaria control,
or were born prior to its ban elsewhere is still a major health concern. The
goal of this study is to understand the possible contribution of DDT to
metabolic syndrome.

Female C57BL/6J mice (15) whose mothers were treated with either Vehicle (oil)
or DDT (1.7mg/kg, po,14 days) had energy expenditure by high resolution indirect
calorimetry while subjected an injection of PBS or CL 316,243 (1mg/kg,IP).
