Inbred Strains of Mice: SSL


Inbr (Le) 60. White spotted, heavy spotting or black-eyed white depending on genotype: a, s/s or s/sl, or sl/sl. Origin: Developed by Le. sl arose in the F2 from a cross of C3H/HeSn x C57BL/6J. b x s to F18. In 1968 outcrossed to a/a, s/s stock (F19) and maintained by sib mating of s/sl to present. The s gene came from a multiple recessive stock of Holman to Runner before 1955. Outcrossed to C57BL/6J and b x s to F19. In 1968 crossed to a a/a hr+/+sl to make s/sl. sl/sl get megacolon and generally die though a few live to breed. Maint. by Le.
