Phenotypic Effects of the ‘‘Mini-Muscle’’ Allele in a Large HR 3 C57BL/6J Mouse Backcross

Abstract

From outbred Hsd:ICR mice, we selectively bred 4 replicate lines for high running (High-Runner [HR] lines) on wheels while maintaining 4 nonselected lines as controls (C lines). An apparent Mendelian recessive, the ‘‘mini-muscle’’ (MM) allele, whose main phenotypic effect is to reduce hindlimb muscle mass by 50%, was discovered in 2 HR lines and 1 C line… (More)
