Inbred Strains of Mice: BPL

BPL /1

Inbr (J, 1998) F55. White bellied agouti. Origin: Gunther Schlager, U. of Kansas. Genetic selection for low blood pressure initiated in 1966 from a base population derived from an 8-way cross among LP/J, SJL/J, BALB/cJ, C57BL/J, 129/J, CBA/J, RF/J and BDP/J. Inbreeding avoided until F23 when several inbred substrains were initiated. Strain has low systolic blood pressure, long life span (approx. 50% longer than BPH/2) and high norephinephrine content in whole brain (Schlager 1994) (see also BPH). Maintained by J.
