Pyruvate tolerance test of HFD-fed GhrR KO and WT mice. Overnight fasted HFD-fed GhrR KO and WT mice each received an i.p. injection of 1 g/kg sodium pyruvate dissolved in water. Tail vein blood glucose samples were assessed for glucose concentration immediately before injection (time 0) and at the indicated time points post-injection. n = 10 mice per group. Data are means ± SE. *, p < 0.05 (GhrR KO vs. WT).
