Origin The stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHRSP) was established by selective breeding of SHR at the Department of Pathology, Kyoto University School of Medicine in 1973. To Shimane Institute of Health Science, Shimane University Faculty of Medicine, Graduate School of Human and Environmental Studies, Kyoto University and to DMCRA in 1994.
Strain characteristics Stroke, hypertension, cardiac hypertrophy and nephrosclerosis.
Breeding Conditions Good breeding performance.
