Inbred Strains of Mice: DH


Inbr 32 (Jah, Aug. 1995). Genet. a, Dh, albino. Origin: Institute of Medical Science, University of Tokyo. C57BL/6xC3H/HeF1 mice from J were crossed with BALB/c-nu/nu once and mice with an albino coat colour were selected, and the nu gene was eliminated. Obtained by Jah in 1986. Carries the dominant hemimelia gene Dh (Green 1989). High incidence of lethality among F1 Dh/+ male mice resulting from a cross between DDD females and DH-Dh/+ males, however, this is not observed in the reciprocal cross (Suto et al, 1996).
