involves: FVB/N
Key:
phenotype observed in females
phenotype observed in males
N normal phenotype
growth/size/body
• by 19 weeks, mice had greater than 50% body fat
• by 27 weeks, mice were nearly double the weight of controls
• evident at 16 days of age and progressive

adipose tissue
• lacked brown adipose tissue
• by 19 weeks, mice had greater than 50% body fat

homeostasis/metabolism
N
• normal corticosterone levels
• hypertriglyceridemia
• plasma triglyceride is dramatically increased over that of non-transgenic controls, and this can be reduced by hepatic overexpression of lipin 1

behavior/neurological
• beginning at 5-7 weeks

nervous system
N
• histologically normal hypothalamus
