from ♀ C57BL/6JRj and ♂ DBA/2JRj (from JANVIER LABS)
Colour and related genotype:
Black mouse, a/a, Tyrp1b/+, Myo5ad/+ MHC: Haplotype H2b/d
Easy to rear, good maternal instinct
Description of our model and application areas
These F1 hybrids are the result of a cross between a C57BL/6JRj female and a DBA/2JRj male. F1 hybrids are heterozygous for B6 and D2 alleles at every locus (provided that the parental strains have different alleles).
It is often used as genetic background for the creation of transgenic, knock-out and harmful phenotype models.
It is also used in behavioural studies, radiation, safety and efficacy testing for nutrients, medicine, pathogens or hormones.
Main application and research fields
The growth curve represents an average which reflects the weight variation of the strain measured between 21 and 84 days for males and females.
Mating: ♀ C57BL/6JRj x ♂ DBA/2JRj
