Inbred Strains of Mice: MAS


Inbr (A) 98. Albino. Genet. c. Origin: Muhlbock from same stock as GRS, and is similar to it at 48/50 biochemical loci. Maint. by A.


Low mammary tumour incidence in females, high lung tumour in both sexes. As is BALB/c, this strain is susceptible to both C3H mammary tumour virus and GRS mammary tumour virus. Very similar to GRS/A: of over 50 genetic markers, only two are different. Leukosis 22% (Hilgers and Galesloot, 1973).
