To identify genetic determinants relevant to non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), we performed a genome-wide analysis for quantitative trait loci (QTLs) using 359 backcross progeny of the Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) rat. The OLETF strain is a well-studied animal model of obese NIDDM, with features of hyperinsulinemia, hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, and abundant abdominal fat. Our extensive genomic scanning with 218 markers revealed nine significant QTLs, including a strong determinant of obesity on chromosome 1 (Dmo1: LOD = 13.99, for body weight). Two highly significant QTLs for glucose homeostasis were found, one on chromosome 1 (Dmo4 LOD = 7.16, for postprandial glucose level) and the other on chromosome X (Dmo11/Odb1: LOD = 7.81, for postprandial glucose level). These data are comparable to results of our previous studies of the OLETF rat.
