Strain developmentSet of 18 recombinant inbred strains. These Recombinant Inbred (RI) Strains were developed and deposited by Benjamin A Taylor, The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine. Parental strains are AKR/J and C57L/J. The RI Strain set were transferred to the animal facility of RIKEN Tsukuba Institute in 1999 just before Ben Taylor's retirement.
Strain descriptionThe Recombinant Inbred Strain between AKR/J and C57L/J. This strain set is useful for the Quantitative Trait Loci mapping, a segregation analysis and a linkage mapping.
Colony maintenanceThis strain is maintained by sister-brother mating. The reproductive performance is good.The body weight (g) at 3 months of age (data available at RIKEN BRC, June 11, 2004).AKXL43 male: 29.9 ± 1.6 g (mean ± SEM) n=8AKXL43 female: 22.3 ± 0.5 g (mean ± SEM) n=8
