Abstract: The talk should lay the background for the cloning of the genes. It will focus on the discovery, Prof Coleman's early work indicating a satiety factor by means of blood exchange between normal and mutant mice. The talk will also deal with the effects of modifying genes in the genetic background on the syndrome seen, and, metabolic efficiency seen in both mutants and ketone body metabolism.
