Inbred Strains of Mice: CASA


Inbr. F?+33 (1989). Mus musculus castaneous wild mice trapped in Thailand by J.T. Marshall, to Chapman, then Roderick and Eicher in 1971.Resistant to flavivirus, unlike most laboratory mice except C3H.RV (Sangster et al 1993). Low retinal ganglion cell number (3/24) (Williams et al, 1996)

Sangster M. Y., Heliams D. B., MacKenzie J. S., and Shellam G. R. (1993) Genetic studies of flavivirus resistance in inbred strains derived from wild mice: evidence for a new resistance allele at the flavivirus resistance locus (Flv). J. Virol. 67, 340-347. \par
