Postnatal deletion of the Bbs1 gene in the mediobasal hypothalamus increases weight gain and adiposity.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
(A) Cre-mediated recombination in the mediobasal hypothalamus after AAV-Cre microinjection was visualized by td-Tomato expression in Bbs1fl/fl/td-Tomato mice. (B) Average weekly body weight changes after bilateral microinjection of AAV-GFP or AAV-Cre into the mediobasal hypothalamus of Bbs1fl/fl/td-Tomato mice (n = 8 females per group). (C-E) Representative MRI images (C), body composition (D) and cumulative 5 days food intake (E) of Bbs1fl/fl/td-Tomato mice received bilateral injection of AAV-GFP or AAV-Cre (n = 7 females per group). Data are means ± SEM, *P< 0.05 vs. AAV-GFP group.
