WDTC1 ("Adipose") is a gene associated with obesity.[1][2][3]

Model organisms[edit]

Model organisms have been used in the study of WDTC1 function. A conditional knockout mouse line called Wdtc1tm1a(KOMP)Wtsi was generated at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.[4] Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen[5] to determine the effects of deletion.[6][7][8][9] Additional screens performed: - In-depth immunological phenotyping[10]
