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
