Possible expression of the obese gene in the brown adipose tissue of lean heterozygote littermates of the genetically obese (ob/ob) mouse.


Lean littermates of the genetically obese (ob/ob) mouse of confirmed genotype, +/+ wildtype or ob/+ heterozygous, were fed either stock diet or a high-energy 'cafeteria' diet. Body weights food consumption, and weights and metabolic parameters of the interscapular and dorso-cervical brown adipose tissue sites were examined. Both genotypes showed similar… (More)
