Inbred Strains of Mice: C


Inbr: 124. Genet: b. Origin: Strong 1920, from a cross of Bagg albino female x DBA male. Strains C3H, CBA, CHI and C121 originated from the same cross.


Moderate mammary tumour incidence.


Inbr. F55 (1993). Genet. A,b,c. Origin: Developed from the 13th. backcross of BALB/cxC57BL/Ka-Igha/Ighb to BALB/c by Michael Potter, NIH, to E. Weiler, ICR in 1964. At ICR the mice were backcrossed to the BALB/cAnNIcr strain for four more generations by Melvin Bosma. C.B-Igha/Ighb N17 progeny were then intercrossed to obtain mice homozygous for Ighb . In 1970 Bosma gave the C.B17-Ighb mice to the Laboratory Animal Facility at the Institute for Cancer Research at Fox Chase Cancer Center. The strain is now maintained in an SPF barrier facility. Its characteristics are essentially those of BALB/c, and its primary use is as a coisogenic control strain for C.B17/Icr-scid.
