From: The obesity gene, TMEM18, is of ancient origin, found in majority of neuronal cells in all major brain regions and associated with obesity in severely obese children

Figure 6

TMEM18 hypothalamic and brainstem mRNA expression in three feeding-related mouse models. mRNA expression relative to the control group (error bars represent SEM) in the hypothalamus (HT) and brainstem (BS) for: A. 48-h consumption of palatable sucrose or Intralipd, B. 16- and 24-h food deprivation and C. Increased body weight after 3-week exposure to sucrose. No significant changes in TMEM18 mRNA expression were found using a one-way ANOVA in any of the experiments.
