Strain: SS/HsdMcwiCrl

Symbol: SS/HsdMcwiCrl
Strain: SS
Substrain: HsdMcwiCrl
RGD ID: 2308886
Citation ID: RRID:RGD_2308886
Ontology ID: RS:0002215
Previously known as: SS/JrHsdMcwiCrl
Type: inbred
Source: Charles River Laboratories
Origin: Inbred from a congenic control group of Dahl/SS rats (SS/JrHsd) obtained from Dr. Theodore Kurtz (UCSF, CA) which were originally derived from the Harlan SS/Jr colony. Maintained at the Medical College of Wisconsin since 1991, this strain has undergone considerable marker-selected breeding to eliminate residual heterozygosity and genetic contamination. To confirm homozygosity, the strain was tested with 200 microsatellite markers (genome-wide scan at 20cM) all of which were homozygous for all regions tested. (Cowley et al. 2000, Physiol. Genomics 2:107-115). To Charles River in 2001.
Coat Color: Albino
Last Known Status: Unknown
