SAM (Senescence Accelerated Mice) Inbred Mice

Country of Origin(Select One)

This strain is under consideration for maintenance and cryopreserved repository.

SAM models were developed from AKR/J by Kyoto University. Five litters with severe senescense were selected to further propogate and examine these characteristics. Litters that showed normal aging were selected as a senescence-resistant series (R-series). The genetic background of the SAM mice bacame suspect after the pathological findings were different from the AKR/J mouse. Each SAM model is genetically different. Each SAM colony was acquired by Harlan by Takeda Chemical Ltd. in 2002.
