RGD Curation Notes
Note Type Note Reference
strain_characteristics AMI rats exhibit amelogenesis imperfect due to underdevelopment of enamel-forming ameloblasts and white incisor. This phenotype is caused by an autosomal single recessive gene (ami). 1302502
strain_reproduction Maintain homozygous condition by crossing among AMI rats. By 20 weeks of age, breeding should be started. 1302502
