Inbred Strains of Mice: SF

SF

Inbr (Dn) 42+32. Agouti +. Origin: wild mice trapped in coal mine and sib-mated by M.Barnawell (Berkeley CA) as 'Corte Madera' to Cambridge 1959. Maint. by Dn.

SF-5613

Inbr: 45. Genet: a.


Characteristics

SF-5621

Inbr: 36. Genet: A, b.


Characteristics

Selected for late sexual maturity in males. Mean age of first fertile mating. 58.2 days; mean weight body at 100 days, 32.3 g.

SF/Cam

Inb : 42 + 8. Genet: +. Origin: Wild mice trapped in a coal mine and sib-mated to F10 by M. Barnawell (Berkeley, Calif.) as `Corte Madera', to Cambridge 1959.


Characteristics

Adrenal X zone relatively and absolutely large in females; very poorly developed zona glomerulosa (Wallace, 1970). High serum complement activity (c.f. 8/26) (Ong et al 1989)
