Mapping of genetic loci predisposing to hypertriglyceridaemia in the hereditary hypertriglyceridaemic rat: analysis of genetic association with related traits of the insulin resistance syndrome

Abstract

Aims/hypothesis. Hypertriglyceridaemia is an important risk factor for coronary heart disease, especially in the context of the insulin resistance syndrome where it often occurs with hypertension. The two phenotypes are also associated in the hereditary hypertriglyceridaemic (hHTg) rat. The aim of this study was to map quantitative trait loci that affect… (More)
