Table 9 Comparison of phenotypes between two groups of BC A y males clustered by the partition method

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

  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. bPGLC indicates plasma glucose levels.
  3. cValues are significantly different between abnormal mice and normal mice.
