Inbred Strains of Mice: BUB


Inbr (J) 122. Albino a,c. Origin: from albinos of unknown ancestry at Brown University, maintained by random mating until 1945. Carries no detectable endogenous ecotropic MuLV DNA sequences (Jenkins et al 1982). High serum complement activity (c.f. 8/26) (Ong et al 1989, 1992). High ED50 to behavioural effects of nicotine (19/19). Sensitive to seizures induced by nicotine (17/19) (Marks et al 1989). Carries a T-cell receptor mutation which, in association with other unknown genes, makes the strain highly susceptible to the induction of inflammatory autoimmune arthritis by type II collagen (Ortman et al, 1994, Haqqi et al, 1995).
