Strain: SS/JrHsdMcwi

Symbol: SS/JrHsdMcwi
Strain: SS
Substrain: JrHsdMcwi
RGD ID: 61499
Citation ID: RRID:RGD_61499
Ontology ID: RS:0000811
Previously known as: MDC-03-09; SS/1JrHsdMcwi
Type: inbred
Source: PhysGen
Origin: Inbred from a congenic control group of Dahl S rats (SS/Ren) 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 etal. 2000, Physiol. Genomics. 2:107-115).
Coat Color: Albino
Inbred Generations: at MCW since 1991
Last Known Status: Live Animals; Cryorecovery
