FHH Rat Details
An outbred stock of fawn hooded rats was introduced into Europe by Tschopp in the early 1970s. Maintained as an outbred stock until the mid-1980s, when brother x sister mating was initiated by A.P. Provoost to produce two strains designated FHH (also known as FHR) and FHL, which differ in expression of hypertension and proteinuria. The colony was transferred to Erasmus University in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, then to the Medical College of Wisconsin in the 1990s. To Charles River in 2001.
