Inbred Strains of Mice: AXB


Inbr circa F29-59 (1992). Set of 48 recombinant inbred strains developed by Nesbitt from A/J x C57BL/6 and C57BL/6 x A/J. (Nesbitt and Skamene 1984), now reduced to 31 living and 8 extinct strains (Marshall et al 1992). Strain distribution pattern of some markers given by Mu et al (1992). Maint. by J.
