  • Values are means ± SE; n, number of mice. Ranges for tidal volume (Vt), breathing frequency (f), and minute ventilation normalized to body mass (nV̇e) were 0.13 (BPH)–0.32 ml (SPRET), 129.5 (NZB)–376.51 breaths/min (BPH), and 1.02 (ICR)–3.31 ml/g (CAST), respectively. *P < 0.05, significantly different compared to SPRET mice; †P < 0.05, significantly different from BPH mice for Vt. *P < 0.05, significantly different compared to BPH mice; †P < 0.05, significantly different compared to NZB mice for f. *P < 0.05, significantly different compared with ICR mice; †P < 0.05, significantly different compared with CAST mice for nV̇e.
