This study characterises the extent of the susceptibility to parasites (first demonstrated with helminths) of hybrids between Mus musculus domesticus and Mus musculus musculus. Experimental infections with Trypanosoma musculi of M. m. domesticus, M. m. musculus and their natural hybrids have been performed to compare their level of resistance/susceptibility. It appears that contrary to the results with helminths, hybrid mice present the same level of resistance/susceptibility to the trypanosome… CONTINUE READING
