Data changelog No updates/corrections.       Initial release date: 05/2011.
A reciprocal intercross of C3H/HeJBir and C57BL/6J was generated to identify the QTLs of the colitis susceptibility modifiers (Cdcs). 411 F2 (201 female +210 male) IL-10-deficient mice were genotyped and necropsied at 6 weeks of age. Many of colitis-related phenotypes were measured and a major contributed QTL was identified on chromosome 3. For detailed protocols see Farmer et al 2001.
