Inbred Strains of Mice: MOLD


Inbr 50 (1989). Origin: As for MOLC. Developed from wild Mus musculus molussinus 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 al, 1996). Maint. by Rk.


Substrain of MOLD selected from F23 for intensity of white spotting phenotypes.
