  1. Data are presented as means ± SEM. Asterisks indicate statistically significant differences between groups of the same age (post-hoc Tukey’s multiple comparison, p < 0.05). Daggers indicate statistically significant differences between ages in the same group (post-hoc Tukey’s multiple comparison, p < 0.05).
