Inbred Strains of Mice: MS


Inbr (A) 30. Albino. Origin: A,U. Aeschbacher before 1973, from 4 males of a Swiss CD-1 stock treated with methylurea. Selection based on high incidence of foetal death. Now more susceptible than other strains to several mutagens/ carcinogens. Highly susceptible to the induction of micronuclei by many chemical compared with other strains (Collaborative Study Group, 1988, Hayashi et al, 1982). Maint. by A.
