  1. Six groups of mice were used in our experiments. At 2 months of age, WT and YAC128 mice were divided into three groups each (15 mice in each group, 90 mice total, all females), and drug treatment was initiated. The drugs were fed orally to mice three times a week starting at 2 months of age for early groups and at 6 months of age for late groups. The group number, group name, number and genotype of mice in each group, and dose of single drug treatment (three times/week) are shown for each group. Also shown is the estimated drug dosage in mg/kg. Ctrl, Control; WT, wild type; YAC, YAC128.
