Metabolic dysfunctions, such as fatty liver, obesity and insulin resistance, are among the most common contemporary diseases worldwide. Mimp/Mtch2 is a mitochondrial carrier protein homologue that leads to mitochondrial depolarization, localizes to the mitochondria and induces accumulation of fat vesicles. Transgenic mice overexpressing Mimp/Mtch2 develop fatty livers and kidneys and exhibit high blood glucose levels. The mechanism of lipid accumulation in the kidney has not been fully determined. In this study we performed a differential gene expression profile of fatty compared to non-fatty kidneys of Mimp/Mtch2-GFP transgenic mice, fed on high fat diet. RNA samples for microarray gene expression profiling were obtained from four Mimp/Mtch2-GFP mice, two samples of low fat kidneys and two of fatty kidneys.
