In Experiment 1, the activity of five inbred strains, A/J, BALB/c, C3H/HeJ, C57BL/6J, and DBA/2J, and two random-bred strains, Fullensdorf and Quackenbush, was observed at ages from 13 to 28 days. The C3H/HeJ, Fullensdorf, and Quackenbush strains exhibited a sharp increase in activity, to a peak at 17 days of age, followed by a decline at later ages. In contrast, the activity of the A/J, BALB/c, C57BL/6J, and DBA/2J mouse strains increased gradually, reaching a peak at 19 days of age. These… CONTINUE READING
