of Mice: MOLD
Inbr 50 (1989). Origin: As for MOLC. Developed from wild Mus musculus
without any intercrossing with laboratory mice. Differs
from laboratory mice at many biochemical loci and also in skeletal morphology
(Festing and Roderick 1989
). Low retinal
ganglion cell number (1/24) (Williams et
). Maint. by Rk.
Substrain of MOLD selected from F23 for intensity of white spotting phenotypes.
