"Previous characterization of mouse chromosome 2 identified genomic intervals that influence obesity, insulin resistance, and dyslipidemia. For this, resistant CAST/Ei (CAST) alleles were introgressed onto a susceptible C57BL/6J background to generate congenic strains with CAST alleles encompassing 67-162 Mb (multigenic obesity 6 [MOB6]) and 84-180 Mb (MOB5) from mouse chromosome 2," researchers in the United States report.
