strain_life_disease These congenic animals lack the bilirubin UDP-glucunosyltransferase activity. 1354704
strain_life_disease Good genetic model for inheritable jaundice which is stable and reproducible. 1354704
strain_phys_biochem Five different isoforms have been isolated from the solubilized microsomal fractions from the liver; isoform I was functionally defective and was active toward 4-nitrophenol after the addition of DEN; isoform IV and V were inactive towards bilirubin. 1302863
