Summary Energy expenditure and substrate utilisation were measured in Psammomys obesis to identify metabolic abnormalities potentially contributing to the development of obesity and diabetes. Furthermore two genes, thyroxine binding globulin and site 1 protease, were identified as differentially regulated in the liver of obese and diabetic Psammomys obesis
