Strain: BN/Crl

Symbol: BN/Crl
Strain: BN
Substrain: Crl
RGD ID: 737972
Citation ID: RRID:RGD_737972
Ontology ID: RS:0000134
Previously known as: BN_EC_Array7; BN/CrlBR
Type: inbred
Source: Charles River Laboratories
Origin: Silvers and Billingham began brother x sister matings with selection for histocompatibility in 1958 from a brown mutation in a stock of wild rats maintained by King and Aptekman in a pen-bred colony of rats trapped from the wild in 1930 by King at the Wistar Institute. To Charles River from Radiobiology Institute, Netherlands in 1976.
