of Mice: ICR
No details. Maint. by Cri.
ICR/Bc (NB. Duplicate name)
Inbr 29. Albino. Origin: BLU:Ha(ICR) outbred stock from the Institute of
Cancer Research in 1958, to Arbor Scientific Co. Ltd., to UBC, Vancouver
in 1977, followed by sib mating. Maint. by Bc.
ICR/Ha (NB. Duplicate name)
Inbr: F43 +. Albino. Genet: A, B, c, P, rd+.
Origin: Hauschka from `Swiss Webster' stock purchased from J. C.
Landis in 1947.
Litter size 8.3 _ 0.13 with 30% preweaning mortality. High intrastrain
aggression. Has been typed at several polymorphic loci (Hauschka and Mirand, 1973
). Susceptible to colon carcinogenesis
by 1,2-dimethylhydrazine (cf. 3/7) (Evans et
., 1977). High histamine release from peritoneal mast cells
induced by compound 48/80, a calcium dependent histamine releaser (3/8)
(Toda et al 1989
). High histamine release
from peritoneal mast cells induced by Ca2+ ionophore A23187 ( c.f. 7/8,
contrast C57BL/6) (Toda et al 1989
to the anaphylactic death following an intravenous injection of bovine
serum albumin into primed mice (Lei et al, 1996
