Table 4 Phenotypes of BC males

From: Genetic background (DDD/Sgn versus C57BL/6J) strongly influences postnatal growth of male mice carrying the Ayallele at the agouti locus: identification of quantitative trait loci associated with diabetes and body weight loss

Phenotype at 25 weeks Mean ± SE values (range)

(3.22–4.94) (3.61–5.31)
Blood glucose (mg/dl) a 209.1 ± 4.4 329.7 ± 14.9

Plasma glucose (mg/dl) nd 427.3 ± 18.6
  (164–869)
Total-cholesterol (mg/dl) 121.7 ± 2.7 154.0 ± 4.4
(69–198) (74–303)
Triglyceride (mg/dl) 245.2 ± 9.9 622.0 ± 24.7

  (1.67–9.15)
  1. aSeven mice had blood glucose levels that exceeded the upper limit of the measuring method (600 mg/dl). Therefore, mean ± SE values were calculated by assuming that their blood glucose levels were 600 mg/dl.
  2. Values are significantly greater in BC Ay than in BC non-Ay males. nd, not determined.
