Inbr (Ola) ?+27. Albino: a,b,c.
Origin: Pitman at NIH from N:NIH(S)
stock to Natl. Inst. Biol. Standards, Hampstead, England in 1968. To Burroughs
Welcome 1970 and Ola in 1975.
Good reproductive performance, and able to breed at high ratios of females
per male (Peters and Festing 1985
causing retinal degeneration (Stirling
et al 1983
i0 1983). Highly susceptible to infection with the helminth
. Larval burdens at 21 days after infection
with 100 tetrathyridia being considerably higher (greater than 1000) than
all other strains except SJL, which was comparable. (Lammas et al 1990
