Strain: WKY/Gcrc

Symbol: WKY/Gcrc
Strain: WKY
Substrain: Gcrc
Full Name: Wistar-Kyoto
RGD ID: 734760
Citation ID: RRID:RGD_734760
Ontology ID: RS:0000761
Also Known As: WKYGla; A2656 ; MDC-03-31
Type: inbred
Available Source: Not Available
Origination: University of Glasgow, Western Infirmary, Glasgow, UK
Description: WKY strain is maintained at the University of Glasgow since December 1991. This colony is the result of the strain specific brother-sister mating of 13 WKY (6 males and 7 females of each) that were obtained from Dr D.F. Bohr (Department of Physiology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor) where they had been maintained as inbred colonies for more than 15 years. Their breeding stocks were originally obtained from NIH
Last Known Status: Unknown
