Searching for genetic factors of fatty liver in SMXA-5 mice by quantitative trait loci analysis under a high-fat diet


, : Searching for genetic factors of fatty liver in SMXA-5 mice by quantitative trait loci analysis under a high-fat diet. Journal of Lipid Research 48(9): 2039-2046

Fatty liver is strongly associated with the metabolic syndrome characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes, but the genetic basis and functional mechanisms linking fatty liver with the metabolic syndrome are largely unknown. The SMXA-5 mouse is one of the SMXA recombinant inbred substrains established from SM/J and A/J strains and is a model for polygenic type 2 diabetes, characterized by moderately impaired glucose tolerance, hyperinsulinemia, and mild obesity. SMXA-5 mice also developed fatty liver, and a high-fat diet markedly worsened this trait, although SM/J and A/J mice are resistant to fatty liver development under a high-fat diet. To dissect loci for fatty liver in the A/J regions of the SMXA-5 genome, we attempted quantitative trait loci (QTLs) analysis in (SM/JxSMXA-5)F2 intercross mice fed a high-fat diet. We mapped a major QTL for relative liver weight and liver lipid content near D12Mit270 on chromosome 12 and designated this QTL Fl1sa. The A/J allele at this locus contributes to the increase in these traits. We confirmed the effect of Fl1sa on lipid accumulation in liver using the A/J-Chr12(SM) consomic strain, which showed significantly less accumulation than A/J mice. This suggests that the SM/J and A/J strains, neither of which develops fatty liver, possess loci causing fatty liver and that the coexistence of these loci causes fatty liver in SMXA-5 mice.
