Description: The LE/StmMcwi was rederived from LE/Stm and maintained at Medical College of Wisconsin. The LE/Stm rats were introduced into Saitama Cancer Center Research Institute in 1969 from a closed colony of Long Evans rats maintained in the Ben May Laboratory for Cancer Research, University of Chicago. A mutant with red-eyed dilution was found in 1970 in the Long-Evans colony, and the mutation was fixed by selective mating. Thereafter, they were maintained by sister-brother mating more than F50.
