Host genes affecting survival period of chemically induced bladder cancer in mice

Host genes affecting survival period of chemically induced bladder cancer in mice

Journal of Cancer Research and Clinical Oncology 124(12): 670-676

Treatment of C57BL/6 J (B6) and NON male mice with N-butyl-N-(4-hydroxybutyl)nitrosamine (BBN) resulted in a high incidence of bladder cancer. The mean survival period, however, differed significantly by strain: 481+/-219 days in B6 (n = 31) and 203+/-119 days in NON (n = 30) (P < 0.0001). Major causes of death were renal failure due to obstruction of the urinary tract, or local invasion of tumors. The fact that the BBN-treated NON x B6 reciprocal F1 mice had survival periods as short as those of the parental NON mice suggests a genetically dominant susceptibility in NON or recessive resistance in B6. A linkage analysis of 248 back-cross mice to B6 suggested at least two quantitative trait loci determining the length of the survival period: one was mapped close to D2Mit260 (logarithm of odds, LOD, score 2.21), a microsatellite marker locus 83 cM from the centromere on chromosome 2, and another was close to D6Mit159, 7 cM from the centromere on chromosome 6 (LOD score 2.51).
