Genetical studies on the body weight and litter size of mice (Mus musculus musculus). Pt. 1. Performance, variability and its genetic parameters on the body weight and litter size of some inbred strains and their F1 and F2 hybrids



Genetical studies on the body weight and litter size of mice (Mus musculus musculus). Pt. 1. Performance, variability and its genetic parameters on the body weight and litter size of some inbred strains and their F1 and F2 hybrids



Mem Tokyo Univ. Agric 11: 1-34



The investigations involved 3 inbred albino strains of mice (A/HeMs, SWR/JMs and DM/Ms) and their F1 and F2 hybrids. Significant strain differences were found in av. litter size (5.84, 6.25 and 6.67 in the 3 strains resp.). In brother-sister matings, the F1 animals produced litters that were larger than the intermediate values for both parents (thus showing heterosis), and variability in litter size was less than in the parental strains.
