strain_behavior Displays a very low level of prepulse inhibition (PPI), which is the inhibitory modulation of a startle response that occurs when a weak stimulus is presented immediately prior to a strong startle stimulus 629579

strain_drgs_chems displays a control of pituitary response to chronic estrogen stimulation characterized by a lack of excessive pituitary growth or pituitary tumor formation. 629581
strain_drgs_chems No significant difference was noticed in the pituitary mass of rats which were given subcutaneous implants of diethlystilbestrol (DES). 61074
strain_drgs_chems These are insensitive to estrogen induced pituitary tumors; DES induces only 1.9 fold increase in pituitary weight. 1358974
strain_drgs_chems sensitive to thymic atrophy induced by the estrogen diethylstilbestrol (DES) 1579780
strain_life_disease Susceptible to estrogen-induced uterine inflammation and infection (pyometritis) 1559292
strain_other Harlan plans to eliminate this strain, this will no longer be bred and available from Harlan Laboratories Inc. Targeted elimination and cryopreservation date is December 31, 2011. The research community should be able to purchase these from Harlan UK. 5508209
