Inbred Strains of Mice: WLL


Inbr: F?+112 (A). Albino. Genet: c. Origin: Kreyberg 1929, from a commercial dealer in Oslo. In 1934 `White Label' mice were sent to Leeds, becoming WLL, and some stayed in Oslo, becoming WLO (not reported). Leukosis 4% (Hilgers and Galesloot, 1973).


Wild mice trapped in Monastir (Tunisia) by G. Lefranc in 1080 and maintained at the Institut Pasteur by sib mating. Homozygous for nine pairs of metacentric chromosomes.

Hilgers J. and Galesloot J. (1973) Genetic control of MuLV-gs expression in crosses between high and low leukemia incidence strains. Int. J. Cancer 11, 780-793. \par
