Table 3 Comparison of basal metabolic rate and oxidative status between winter phenotypes of Siberian hamster

From: Photoresponsiveness affects life history traits but not oxidative status in a seasonal rodent

  Phenotype
Life history trait responding non-responding
Basal metabolic rate (W) 268 ± 0.009 273 ± 0.005
Reactive Oxygen Metabolites (mg dL− 1) male 15.50 ± 8.00 9.71 ± 1.54 a
female 10.77 ± 1.88 b 9.67 ± 2.91
Biological Antioxidant Potential (μM Vit-C L− 1) male 3525.98 ± 360.47 3596.77 ± 237.59
female 3517.56 ± 655.83 b 3230.47 ± 608.63 b
  1. Values are mean ± SD or marginal mean ± SE in case of Basal metabolic rate
  2. a difference between reproductive status; P < 0.05
  3. b difference between sexes within phenotype; P < 0.05
