  1. Data are reported as means ± SE from 10 animals per group. Groups: control (C); pregnant control (N); pregnant tumor-bearing (WN); pregnant control pair-fed to tumor-bearing groups (Np); pregnant control receiving a leucine supplemented diet (L), pregnant tumor-bearing receiving a leucine supplemented diet (WL) and pregnant control leucine pair-fed group (Lp). a p < 0,05 compared to control group (C); b p < 0,05 comparison among L, WL and Lp groups to N, WN and Np, respectively, c p < 0,05 N vs WN and L vs WL.
