Whole-genome scans have identified Dmo1 as a major quantitative trait locus (QTL) for obesity
and dyslipidaemia in the Otsuka Long Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) rat. We have produced
congenic rats for the Dmo1 locus, using marker-assisted speed congenic protocols, enforced by
selective removal of other QTL regions (QTL-marker-assisted counterselection), to efficiently
transfer chromosomal segments from non-diabetic Fischer 344 (F344) rats into the OLETF
background. In the third generation of congenic animals, we observed a substantial therapeutic
effect of the Dmo1 locus on lipid metabolism, obesity control and plasma glucose homeostasis. We
conclude that single-allele correction of an impaired genetic pathway can generate a substantial
therapeutic effect, despite the complex polygenic nature of type II diabetic syndromes.
