[Genetic control of catalepsy in mice].

[Article in Russian]


Pinch-induced immobility (catalepsy) was studied in mice of 9 inbred strains. CBA mice were found to be different from those of other strains both by the highest percent of cataleptics (56%) and by the highest duration of immobility. The Mendelian analysis of predisposition to catalepsy was performed on CBA and AKR mice strains contrasting in this feature. Reciprocal F1 hybrids did not display any catalepsy. Manifestation of cataleptics in the F2 and in CBA x F2 backcrosses suggested that catalepsy was inherited as a recessive, monogenic, autosomal feature.
