Genetic parameters of serum cholesterol levels, activity and growth in mice.

Heritabilities (h2) of, and phenotypic and genetic correlations among, serum cholesterol (SC), levels of physical activity, growth, and body moisture content were estimated from data on 466 sire-son pairs of random-bred, ICR albino mice. Heritability estimates of SC and body moisture content were 0.31 +/- 0.07 and 0.29 +/- 0.11, respectively. Estimates of… CONTINUE READING
