Abstract

This review summarizes the behavioral characteristics of C57BL/6J, DBA/2J, and B6D2F1, hybrid mice which are most likely to be of interest to gerontological scientists. Where possible, the characteristics of young and old mice are included. Where no information exists about the behavior of older mice of these genotypes, but there is reason to believe that information about mice might be useful for aging research, this information is included. The purpose of the review is to acquaint gerontologists with the availability of genetically defined animal models for aging research, to present what is known about these models, and to suggest areas of research which could profit from more attention.
