The genetic association of the agouti (a) locus with mouse adrenal X zone morphology on a specific genetic background has been suggested. To confirm this, the adrenal cortices of virgin females were compared histologically between BALB/c (A/A) and its mutant, BALB/c-a/a (a/a). The X zone was similar in the number of constituting cell layers, but different in morphology between the A/A and a/a genotypes. At 70 days of age, it was constituted of vacuolated cells exclusively in A/A and of non… CONTINUE READING
