This strain is originated from Fischer344 which transferred from Dr. Dunning to Charles River Laboratories, Inc., 1960 at F68. Breeding under SPF condition has started in 1965 at F81 and F110 rats were transferred to Charles River Japan, Inc. in 1976. (May 27, 2010)
Small size, docile. (May 27, 2010)
This strain has a missense mutation (Gly633Arg) in DIPEPTIDYL PEPTIDASE IV（Dpp4）gene. The functional DPP4 protein is not expressed in this strain. (July 7, 2016).
Good breeding performance. (May 27, 2010)
