Method and kit for evaluation of predisposition to development of obesity, anti-obesity agent and method for screening thereof, non-human animal, adipose tissue, adipocyte, method for production of transgenic mouse, antigen, and antibody
It is an object of the present invention to provide a method of evaluating whether or not a subject has a predisposition to obesity or an obesity-related condition or disease, a kit for conducting the method, an anti-obesity drug having an effect of preventing or treating obesity or an obesity-related condition or disease, a method of screening the anti-obesity drug, a non-human animal having a deficiency in the gene associated with obesity, and an adipose tissue or adipocyte of the animal. The method of evaluating a predisposition to obesity of the present invention is a method of evaluating whether or not a subject has a predisposition to obesity or an obesity-related condition or disease. The method includes the step of detecting a copy number variation (CNV) in intron 1 of SLC25A24 gene or a gene polymorphism having a linkage disequilibrium relationship with the CNV in a sample containing a human gene of the subject. If the CNV in intron 1 of the SLC25A24 gene is 0, the subject may be evaluated to have a predisposition to obesity or an obesity-related condition or disease.
