author keywords: Gene expression; Mice; Liver, Conjugated linoleic acid; Obesity, Hepatic steatosis, Fatty liver
MeSH headings : Animals; Fatty Liver / genetics; Fatty Liver / metabolism; Gene Expression Profiling; Hepatocyte Nuclear Factor 4 / genetics; Linoleic Acids, Conjugated / pharmacology; Liver / metabolism; Male; Mice; Obesity / genetics; Obesity / metabolism

TL;DR: Dopamine was similar in both strains at all stages, but DOPAC was significantly higher at early lactation in the mutants, and it is likely that the increase in DopAC in the mutant reflects a decrease in prolactin, which could contribute to the diminished maternal care in the mutations.

MeSH headings : Adipose Tissue / anatomy & histology; Animals; Body Composition / genetics; Body Weight / genetics; Breeding; Least-Squares Analysis; Male; Mice / genetics; Models, Biological; Phenotype
TL;DR: The results indicate that, although there are high positive genetic correlations between fat depots in mice, local control of lipogenesis and lipolysis exists at different sites of fat deposition, and the lack of correlated responses in fat-free percentage of protein (and percentage of ash) suggests that additive genetic variances are low for these traits and the genetic correlations with the selection criteria are low.
