Strain: LE/BluGill

Symbol: LE/BluGill
Strain: LE/BluGill
RGD ID: 631163
RRID: RGD_631163
Ontology ID: RS:0000436
Type: inbred
Source: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Origin: This inbred colony from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was derived from Long Evans Outbred rats originally purchased from Blue Spruce Farms, Altamont, NY in the Fall of 1982. In order to reduce individual differences, Principal Investigator, Martha U. Gillette, PhD, initiated inbreeding (consecutive brother-sister matings). In March 1993, the colony reached generation #20, defined by the Institute for Animal Laboratory Research (ILAR) as the point during inbreeding at which the strain can officially be considered inbred. This inbred colony continues to be used by Dr. Gillette and her laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to research cell, molecular and integrative mechanisms in the brain's circadian clock.
Coat Color: Albino
Inbred Generations: F20
Last Known Status: Unknown

strain_characteristics 6-9 week animals are used for making coronal hypothalmic slice which has paired suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). These brain slices can survive three days with continuous perfusion and can be used to determine the circadian rhythms generated by the endogenous circadian clock. 734507
