The high emetic response (HER) strain and low emetic response (LER) strain of musk shrews (Suncus murinus) markedly differ in the emetic reflex in adults. However, there have been no studies on young musk shrews. We gave a shaking stimulus to young musk shrews aged 10 days or more that were obtained by mating within each strain and observed emetic responses. In the HER strain, no animal aged 10 days vomited, but vomiting was observed in 1 of 5 animals each aged 12 and 14 days, 2 of 5 animals… CONTINUE READING
