Wahlsten D, Bachmanov A, Finn DA, Crabbe JC. Stability of inbred mouse strain differences in behavior and brain size between laboratories and across decades.
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2006 Oct 31;103(44):16364-9. Epub 2006 Oct 19.
Wahlsten D, Metten P, Crabbe JC. Survey of 21 inbred mouse strains in two laboratories reveals that BTBR T/+ tf/tf has severely reduced hippocampal commissure and absent corpus callosum.
Brain Res. 2003 May 2;971(1):47-54.
This study was conducted on the same set of mice rated for
wildness and ease of handling (Wahlsten2).
Wahlsten1 data were measured at two different sites, Edmonton and Portland.
The data were pooled to compute strain means for the above MPD measurements.
Comparability across testing sites
MPD has computed correlations to look at comparability / reproducability of results across the two testing sites:
Strain/sex averages were correlated to compare Edmonton vs. Portland for brain morphology and behavior
components (the latter was added March 2014). Pearson and
Spearman statistics are available as well as pvalue on the Pearson.
Note, low sample sizes (N=2) are present for SPRET/EiJ males.
Some measurements were derived by MPD staff, based on supplied data. [View list]
