Note Type Note Reference
strain_characteristics In the open field test these cross less lines than WLI/Eer 4891104
strain_characteristics Under restraint stress males have higher plasma CORT response than WLI/Eer males 4891104
strain_other Between WMI/Eer and WLI/Eer strains there are 638 genes in amygdala and 463 genes in hippocampus that are differentially expressed; whereas only Kcnj14 and Mprl9 in amygdala and Chi3l1, Col1a1, Mmp14 and RGD1305680 in the hippocampus show differential expression both in chronic stress response and endogenous depression 4891105
