The ambulatory and rearing responses to d-amphetamine were studied in a battery of recombinant inbred strains and in three closely related strains: C57BL/6J, C57Bl/10J, and C57BL/LBy. Differences in the increase of ambulation (stimulation) caused by d-amphetamine were seen between C57BL/6By and the other two C57BL strains. Analysis of F1 and backcross(More)
Small doses of the opiate antagonist naloxone selectively abolished overeating in genetically obese mice (ob/ob) and rats (fa/fa). Elevated concentrations of the naturally occurring opiate beta-endorphin were found in the pituitaries of both obese species and in the blood plasma of the obese rats. Brain levels of beta-endorphin and Leu-enkephalin were(More)
The mode of inheritance of the synaptosomal mechanism for uptake of norepinephrine (NE) was studied in two inbred strains of mice, BALB/cBY and C57BL/6BY, along with the reciprocal F1 hybrids and 7 recombinant inbred strains, CXBD, CXBE, CXBG,CXBH,CXBI,CXBJ and CXBK. All these strains were also tested in the open field as a measure of response to mild(More)
