It has been suggested that the Y chromosome of DBA/1Bg mice makes an incremental contribution to their aggressive behavior and to that of the C57BL/10 female X DBA/1 male F1 hybrids. To test this hypothesis, a congenic stock of C57BL/10 with the DBA/1 Y chromosome was developed by the backcross system of breeding; the stock is designated C57BL/10-Y1. There… CONTINUE READING
