B6

Origin

Received by NCI from Dr. Allan Bradley at Baylor College of Medicine in 2000. The B6 albino strain is a spontaneous albino mutant coisogenic C57BL/6 strain. The mice contain a mutation in the tyrosinase gene, and when homozygous for the mutation the coat color of the mice is albino rather than black. To Charles River in 2009 from NCI.
