Abstract

1. 1. To evaluate the effect of protein-calorie malnutrition on young miniature swine, piglets were fed test diets from 5, 21 or 35 days of age until sacrifice at age 63 days. 2. 2. Mean cerebellum DNA concentration was greater for malnourished or pair-fed piglets than for controls weaned at age 5 days. 3. 3. Mean forebrain DNA concentration was greater for malnourished than for control or pair-fed piglets weaned at age 5 days. 4. 4. Mean forebrain RNA concentration was greater for control than for pair-fed or malnourished piglets weaned at age 5 days. 5. 5. The brain stem was less vulnerable to postnatal protein-calorie malnutrition than were either the forebrain or the cerebellum.
