To identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) responsible for regulating plasma lipid concentration associated with obesity, linkage analysis was carried out on the 190 F2 progeny of a cross between C57BL/6J female and KK-Ay (Ay allele at the agouti locus congenic) male. In F2 a/a (agouti locus genotype) mice, two QTLs were identified on chromosome 1 and a QTL on chromosome 3 for total-cholesterol. A QTL for HDL-cholesterol was identified on chromosome 1 and a QTL for NEFA on chromosome 9. In F2… CONTINUE READING
