N normal phenotype
adipose tissue
• interscapular brown adipose tissue and gonadal fat mass are reduced to about 80% and 70% wild-type, respectively, however the inguinal fat pad and pectoral subcutaneous fat pad are each increased to about 140% wild-type
• the overall ratio of intra-abdominal to extra-abdominal fat weight is reduced to 63% wild-type
• the size of adipocytes is abnormally uniform with fewer small cells found
• gonadal fat mass is reduced to about 70% wild-type as a result of a decrease in cell numbers
• the inguinal fat pad is increased to about 140% wild-type

cardiovascular system
• blood pressure is increased about 8 mmHg in both male and female mutants

endocrine/exocrine glands
• islet area and endocrine mass are significantly increased in mutants fed a high fat diet

homeostasis/metabolism
• glucose tolerance is improved and insulin sensitivity is normal
