Data changelog No updates/corrections.       Initial release date: 01/2008.
A reciprocal backcross of AKR/J and SWR/J was generated to identify QTLs for cholesterol gallstones, gallbladder mucin accumulation, liver and body weight. At 8 wks of age, backcross progeny of both sexes were administered a high-fat (15%) diet for 12 wks and examined for gallstone formation and related phenotypes. Mice were fasted prior to sample collection. For detailed protocols see Wittenburg et al 2002.
