Obesity is a strong risk factor for the development of
type 2 diabetes. We have previously reported that in
adipose tissue of obese (ob/ob) mice, the expression of
adipogenic genes is decreased. When made genetically
obese, the BTBR mouse strain is diabetes susceptible
and the C57BL/6J (B6) strain is diabetes resistant. We
used DNA microarrays and RT-PCR to compare the gene
expression in BTBR-ob/ob versus B6-ob/ob mice in adi-
pose tissue, liver, skeletal muscle, and pancreatic islets.
