Metabolic characteristics of the transgenic mice and their wild-type littermates

Plasma free fatty acids (mg/dl)Plasma triglycerides (mg/dl)Plasma leptin (ng/ml)
Wild type1.46 ± 0.13154.6 ± 9.42.09 ± 0.30
Transgenic1.44 ± 0.77166.8 ± 16.61.57 ± 0.21
  • Data are means ± SE of values from 7–10 animals from each genotype at 8 weeks for plasma triglycerides and leptin or at 10 weeks for plasma free fatty acids.
