Rb(1.3)1Bnr, Rb(4.6)2Bnr, Rb(5.15)3Bnr, Rb(11.13)4Bnr, Rb(8.12)5Bnr, Rb(9.14)6Bnr, and Rb(16.17)7Bnr were identified in the progeny of tobacco mice trapped in Val Poschiavo, Switzerland. A female from the random bred Swiss NMRI/Han stock was bred to a male descended from the mice trapped in Val Poschiavo and their F1 offspring were sent from Dr. Alfred Gropp at Medizinische Hochschule, Lubeck, to Dr. Thomas Roderick at The Jackson Laboratory where they were intercrossed and the F2 offpsring were separated into distinct breeding lines maintained by sibling mating. This generated a panel of recombinant inbred strains, some of which were developed by Dr. Eva Eicher, including RB16Bnr/EiJ (stock #002041). This strain is homozygous for Rb(1.3)1Bnr, and Rb(9.14)6Bnr. (Eicher and Washburn, 1983.)
When using the RB16Bnr/EiJ mouse strain in a publication, please include JAX stock #002041 in your Materials and Methods section.
