Inbred Strains of Mice: MOLG


Inbr. F17+14. White-bellied agouti , Aw . Derived by Davisson from an incipient inbred strain MOLC/Rk (now extinct) at F14, itsself derived from Mus musculus molussinus imported from Dr. Michael Potter to the Jackson Laboratory in 1969. These mice were said to be "within one to three generations of [mice] captured in the wild." Has a very large probable duplication of heterochromatin C-band near the centromere of chr. 2. which provides a cytological marker for gene mapping of proximal end of this chromosome.
