Direct and maternal genetic differences between lines of mice selected for body weight and litter size: traits of dams



Direct and maternal genetic differences between lines of mice selected for body weight and litter size: traits of dams



Journal of Animal Science 59(3): 630-642



Genetic differences in performance of dams were estimated by linear constrasts using means of 2 selected lines of mice and reciprocal F1s, F2s and backcrosses. The lines were selected for increased 6-wk body weight or increased litter size. Genetic differences were estimated in terms of direct average, direct heterosis, maternal average, progeny average and progeny heterosis effects.
