Inbred Strains of Mice: MH


Inbr: 40. Genet: mk/+. Origin: Jax mutant No. 63-36, B6D2F1-mk from M. M. Dickie to E. S. Russell 1963.


Segregates for compensating microcytic anaemia. All mk/mk are born alive; one-third to one-half die before 3 weeks, developing skin lesions and tail amputation, but surviving mk/mk are fertile and appear normal except for supernormal numbers of very small erythrocytes. Haematology well characterised (Staats, 1976).
