The polydactylous rat strain (PD/Cub) is a highly inbred (F > 90) genetic model of metabolic syndrome. The aim of this study was to analyze the genetic architecture of the metabolic derangements found in the PD/Cub strain and to assess its dynamics in time and in response to diet and medication. We derived a PD/Cub x BN/Cub (Brown Norway) F2 intercross(More)
OBJECTIVES Ondansetron is an antagonist of 5-HT3 receptors mostly used as an antiemetic yet known to modulate metabolism and appetite. We tested the metabolic effects of ondansetron in newly derived congenic rat strain, carrying limited chromosome 8 regions of (PD) Brown Norway (BN) and polydactylous (PD) strain origins (including variant serotonin receptor(More)
