Size inheritance and growth in a mouse species cross . III. Inheritance of adult quantitative characters



Size inheritance and growth in a mouse species cross . III. Inheritance of adult quantitative characters



Jour Exp Zool 59(2): 213-245



The 2 forms differed qualitatively as well as quantitatively, the large musculus (average weight about 30 gm.) carrying the genes d, b, and a, while the small bactrianus (average weight about 15 gm.) possessed their dominant allelomorphs, D, B, and Aw . Ten quantitative indices, body length, tail length, relative tail length, number of caudal vertebrae, adult weight, skull width, and the lengths of skull, humerus, femur, and tibia, were studied. The F1 animals tended to be intermediate in size, although equaling or exceeding the large parent in some skeletal measurements. The back-cross generations (F X musculus) were more variable than the F1, and in some skeletal measurements the means likewise exceeded those of the large race. The inheritance of size probably took place through a number of chromosomal genes, not all of which may have been general in their action. In addition, there were strong indications in the back-cross of linkage between quantitative characters and the qualitative characters d, b, and a.
