Ten SW.B6 SOA nontaster strains congenic with the SWR/J SOA taster inbred strain were bred via repeated backcross-intercross cycles, with selection for nontasting in each cycle. Preference ratio distributions and phenotypic proportions across cycles at 0.1 mM SOA were consistent with monogenic predictions. The SW.B6 mice completed a congenic quartet with the SWR/J, B6.SW SOA taster and C57BL/6J SOA nontaster strains. The Soa locus controlled avoidance differences within the quartet for SOA… CONTINUE READING
