N normal phenotype
• male heterozygotes are apparently healthy and exhibit no significant differences in body weight, fat-pad, basal fasting glucose and insulin levels or FFA levels relative to wild-type mice
• unexpectedly, during oral glucose tolerance tests, heterozygotes are able to maintain wild-type glucose levels, despite a significant reduction in plasma insulin concentrations
• during glucose clamp experiments, heterozygotes show a 30% increase in the insulin-induced glucose disposal rate relative to wild-type mice
• similarly, heterozygotes exhibit a significant increase in insulin-induced suppression of hepatic glucose production relative to wild-type mice
• improved insulin sensitivity may be associated with increased serum leptin levels, as heterozygotes do show a significant increase in leptin mRNA expression
