Note Type Note Reference
qtl_general animals used: 50-55 days old females 1601189
qtl_general software used: Mann-Whitney nonparametric test used for analysing mammary cancer multiplicity data 1601189
qtl_general inducing agent: DMBA (65 mg/kg of body wt) 1601189
qtl_general resistance is observed only when Mcs23 and Mcs24 WKY alleles are in cis orientation, when in trans they develop similar number of carcinomas; heterozygous animals have fewer carcinomas 1601189
