    Diabetes 53:3274-85. 2004
    ..e., the "thrifty gene," is a dominant-acting genetic determinant of diet-induced obesity in mice and can be linked to a locus on chromosome 14, including genes linked to adipose development and insulin sensitivity...

    Diabetes 54:1314-23. 2005
    ..Thus, dietary fat and genetic background act through SREBP-1c and SCD1 to affect hepatic lipid metabolism contributing to the development of the metabolic syndrome...

    Research Division, Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02215, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:2366-71. 2007
    ..Thus, ectopic deposits of brown adipose tissue in intermuscular depots with regulatable expression of UCP1 provide a genetically based mechanism of protection from weight gain and metabolic syndrome between strains of mice...

    Marcelo A Mori
    Section on Integrative Physiology and Metabolism, Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    Diabetes 59:2960-71. 2010
    ..Our goal was to identify early molecular signatures predicting genetic risk to these metabolic diseases using two strains of mice that differ greatly in disease susceptibility...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 99:2124-8. 2002
    ..Thus, the Met-326Ile variant of p85alpha is functional for intracellular signaling and adipocyte differentiation but has small alterations in protein expression and activity that could play a role in modifying insulin action...

    ..But, this is only achieved only at a higher body mass and, therefore, may be adaptive rather than preventative. Neither obesity-prone nor resistant mice respond to HF feeding by expressing more UCP1 in ectopic BAT within muscle tissue...
