Strain: ZUC-LeprfaSte-/-

Symbol: ZUC-LeprfaSte-/-
Strain: ZUC-Leprfa-/-
Substrain: Ste
RGD ID: 629462
Citation ID: RRID:RRRC_00839
Ontology ID: RS:0001098
Alleles: Leprfa
Previously known as: Z(fa/fa); Z-Leprob/Ste; Z-Leprfa/Ste;ZUC-Leprfa/Ste; ZUC-LeprfaSte; Zucker rats; recessive fatty rats; ZUC-LeprfaSte
Type: mutant
Source: University of California Davis, Davis, CA
Origin: This recessive fatty Zucker rat carries a mutation that occurred spontaneously in the 13M stock and was reported by Lois Zucker and Theodore Zucker in 1960. This was observed during genetic experiments related to coat color and body size.
Last Known Status: Unknown

RGD Curation Notes
Note Type Note Reference
strain_anatomy All bones are abnormally thick with severe reduction in the amount of hemopoietic bone marrow. The liver and spleen show an increase of extramedullary hemopoiesis. Female fatty rats have underdeveloped uterus and are uniformally sterile. 628581
strain_phys_biochem These have lactescence (milky appearance) of the blood serum.The total fatty acid level reaches ten times in obese rats as compared to the lean littermates. Blood lipid levels remain high even after 18-hours of fasting. Blood sugar stays in the normal range both in fed or fasted rats. Serum triglycerides were higher in obese rats. Metabolism of arachidonic acid alters the severe insulin resistance that is present in the obese rats. 628582
strain_phys_biochem These have three fold higher urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratios (ACR) as compared to ZUC.BN-(D1Rat42-D1Rat90)/Ste 7387321
strain_reproduction Breeding of this strain is very difficult mostly fatty males are bred with heterozygous females giving 50% fatty offsprings and 50% heterozygous. 628582
