Mucopolysaccharidosis type IIIB (MPS IIIB or Sanfilippo B disease) is an autosomal recessive storage disorder caused by deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme a-N-acetylglucosaminidase. Mutation screening was performed on a group of 22 patients using a combination of SSCP/heteroduplex analysis of amplified genomic fragments and direct sequencing of cDNA(More)
Genome wide association studies revealed an association of the single nucleotide polymorphism rs11708067 within the ADCY5 gene--encoding adenylate cyclase 5--with increased type 2 diabetes (T2D) risk and higher fasting glucose. However, it remains unclear whether the association between ADCY5 variants and glycemic traits may involve adipose tissue (AT)(More)
The C57BL/6 (B6) is one of the oldest inbred mouse strains. It has been widely used as control strain in metabolism research for many decades. Preliminary data from our lab indicated that C57BL/6JRj mice are not responding to diet induced obesity. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare the two different B6 substrains, C57BL/6NTac and C57BL/6JRj, in(More)
We have recently demonstrated that C57BL/6NTac and C57BL/6JRj substrains are significantly different in their response to high-fat diet-induced obesity (DIO). The C57BL/6JRj substrain seems to be protected from DIO and genetic differences between C57BL/6J and C57BL/6N substrains at 11 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) loci have been identified. To define(More)
