This was the first inbred mouse strain in the world found by Little, and the 212th subline became DBA/2. DBA/2J* mice at F155 were introduced from the Jackson Laboratory to CLEA Japan, Inc. in 1986. DBA/2N mice at F124 were introduced from NIH to the Central Institute for Experimental Animals in 1978, and then to CLEA Japan, Inc. at F124+26 in 1988.
(*This substrain is at least (a number>20 by definition) generations removed from the originating JAXⓇ Mice strain and has NOT been re-infused with pedigreed stock from The Jackson Laboratory.)
