Inbred Strains of Mice: AG


Inbr (Cam) c155. Colour depends on genotype: Ay/ae x Ay/ae with Aw,A,As,at,a and p continuously backcrossed to the Ay/ae line. Origin: R.A.Fisher, 'A' from Gruneberg in 1945 at F34 (a CBA substrain, J.R. Morton, unpublished communication). Various alleles introduced by M.E.Wallace by backcrossing and maintained mainly by sib-mated substrain until 1959, then backcrossing to a single Ay/a substrain, then Ay/ae substrain. Non-sibmating in a very small stock for 23 generations. Stock now frozen except for close inbreeding of Aw, at and ae . Maint. by Cam.
