Hereditary cataracts in the John Rapp inbred strain of Dahl salt-sensitive rat.

Abstract

Cataracts were apparently fixed in the genome of a highly inbred strain of Dahl salt-sensitive (S/JR) rat during the course of the selection for hypertension. Cataracts were present in S/JR rats inbred for more than 40 generations, but were not present in any of the salt-resistant rats (R/JR) inbred and observed during the same time.
