strain_life_disease An age-related glomerulosclerosis occurs in this strain, but not in MHS (Pugliese et al, 1995). This can be ameliorated but not prevented by a diet enriched in fish oil (Goldstein et al, 1995) 1004

strain_phys_biochem At weaning, mean systolic blood pressure not different from that of MHS at about 119 mmHg, but by about 50 days the mean systolic blood pressure has only risen to 131 mmHg compared with about 170 mmHg in MHS. See MHS for more details 1004

strain_phys_biochem exhibits the lowest level of sensorimotor ability (motor coordination) among the eleven strains: ACI/SegHsd, AUG/OlaHsd, BUF/NHsd, COP/Hsd, DA/OlaHsd, F344/NHsd, PVG/OlaHsd, LEW, WKY, SR/Jr, and MNS 619608
