Notes
  • Experiment
    Linkage analysis was performed on a population of (C57BL/6J x A/J)F1 x A/J backcross animals to identify loci associated with regulation of Ucp1, Ppara, Ppargca1, and Dio2 (deiodinase type II) expression during cold-induced brown adipocyte induction. Animals were fed either a low fat (LF) or high fat (HF) diet and exposed to cold (5 degrees Celsius) for 7 days. Parental strain A/J displays significantly increased brown fat expression of Ucp1, Ppargc1a, Dio2, and Ppara mRNA after 7 days of cold exposure compared to C57BL/6J.

    A previously identified QTL named Iba1 (induction of brown adipocytes 1) was detected in this study. Iba1 maps to 47.8 cM on mouse Chromosome 2 near D2Mit66. This locus is linked to cold-induced Dio2 expression on LF and HF diets andcold-induced Ppara expression on a HF diet. A novel locus named Iba6 (induction of brown adipocytes 6) mapped to 10 cM on mouse Chromosome 2 near D2Mit80. Iba6 is linked to cold-induced Dio2 expression on LF and HF diets.

    Previously identified Iba2 (induction of brown adipocytes 2) was detected in this study at 48.2 cM on mouse Chromosome 3 near D3Mit101. This locus is linked to cold-induced Dio2 expression and cold-induced Ppara expression on a LF diet.

    A novel locus linked to cold-induced Dio2 expression on a LF diet mapped to 49.5 cM on mouse Chromosome 4 near D4Mit175. This QTL is named Iba7 (induction of brown adipocytes 7).

    Previously identified Iba5 (induction of brown adipocytes 5) was detected in this study at 24 cM on mouse Chromosome 5 near D5Mit182. This locus is linked to cold-induced Dio2 expression and cold-induced Ppara expression on a LF diet.

    Previously identified Iba3 (induction of brown adipocytes 3) was detected in this study at 37 cM on mouse Chromosome 5 near Ucp1. This locus islinked to cold-induced Dio2 expression on a LF diet and cold-induced Ppara expression on a HF diet.

    A novel locus linked to cold-induced Dio2 expression and cold-induced Ppara expression on a LF diet mapped to 49 cM on mouse Chromosome 15 near D15Mit107. This QTL is named Iba8 (induction of brown adipocytes 8). Ppara is located at 48.8 cM and may be responsible for this locus.

    Previously identified Iba4 (induction of brown adipocytes 4) was detected in this study at 20 cM on mouse Chromosome 19 nearD19Mit86. This locus is linked to cold-induced Dio2 expression and cold-induced Ppara expression on a HF diet.
