Persistence of reduced aggression in vasopressin 1b receptor knockout mice on a more "wild" background.


It has been previously reported that vasopressin 1b receptor knockout (Avpr1b(-/-)) mice have reduced levels of aggressive behavior compared to wildtype littermates. However, as the background of the mice was always a mixture of 129/SvJ and C57BL/6, we wanted to determine if the phenotype persisted when our laboratory line was crossed with a wild-derived… (More)
