  1. MHPR, mothers fed the high-salt (4 % NaCl, w/w) diet during mating period and the regular (0.75 % NaCl, w/w) chow during pregnant period; MLPR, mothers fed the low-salt (0.3 % NaCl, w/w) diet during mating period and the regular chow during pregnant period; MRPR, mothers fed the regular chow during mating period and during pregnant period; MRPH, mothers fed the regular chow during mating period and the high-salt diet pregnant period; MRPL, mothers fed the regular chow during mating period and the low-salt diet during pregnant period. Total, the total number of mothers; delivered, the number of mothers that gave birth to pups; non-delivered, the number of mothers that failed to give birth to pups. **The differences in delivered rats were assessed by χ2 test (df = 1). 0.75 % NaCl (w/w) chow (regular chow) is usually used for maintaining of rat colonies. bmothers that delivered babies.
