Physiological Consequences of Altering Gene Expression Click here for help
Mice with Gpr82 knockout have a lower body weight and body fat content associated with a reduced food intake. In addition, mice with Gpr82 knockout show decreased serum triglyceride levels, higher insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance.
Species:  Mouse
Technique:  Knock-out by homologous recombination in embryonic stem cells
