Gene Affected
Origin F344 rats are susceptible and ACI rats are resistant to PhIP(2-Amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine)-induced ACF (aberrant crypt foci) formation (Nagao, 1998). Targeting on susceptible gene for colon tumor on rat chromosome 16 (Nakagama, 1999), this congenic strain was established. A sub congenic strain of ACI/N.F344-(D16Rat12-D16Mco2)/Nkg (NBRP No.0401) (Jul 7, 2009)
Strain characteristics This congenic strain has almost the same characterization as shown in ACI/N. (Jul 7, 2009)
Breeding Conditions Good breeding performance.
