The aim of this study was to evaluate different mating strategies among endogamic strains to create F1 hybrid populations of mice, minimising the effect of the inbreeding depression in somatic development and embryo production.
Young females from the endogamic strains Swiss, CBA and C57B1/6, 50 days old, were divided in inter- and intra-lineages mating, in a total of nine experimental arrangements (paternal x maternal): Group 1, Swiss x Swiss; Group 2, Swiss x C57B1/6; Group 3, Swiss x CBA; Group 4, C57Bl/6 x C57B1/6; Group 5, C57B1/6 x Swiss; Group 6, C57Bl/6 x CBA; Group 7, CBA x CBA; Group 8, CBA x Swiss; e Group 9, CBA x C57B1/6.
The offspring from the endogamic Swiss strain was larger and heavier (P < 0.
The aim of this work was to evaluate different mate strategies among endogamic strains for the production of F1 mice populations.
This effect was not very clear for weight, a trait in which outbreed mice showed intermediate values when compared to those of the endogamic strains, but suggested for body length, with the groups C57B1/6 x CBA and CBA x C57B1/6 showing a trend for values higher than those from the respectively inbreed strains.
But this shift was only relative, as Molho emphasizes continuity rather than change: the ruling class (and the elite within it) had had substantially the same personnel and the same endogamic marital policies already in 1400.
Table 2 summarizes the results of the mating tests involving the control populations (ancestral, endogamic, and prima; see Materials and Methods).
We carried out relatively few assortative-mating tests between our endogamic and prima lines, in part because these showed signs of inbreeding depression (low viability), which made it difficult to collect virgins for the tests.
Many studies indicate that Costa Rica's populations, specially those of the central region, are highly endogamic (Melendez 1982, Stone 1982, Saborio 1993, Escamilla et al.
As some national publications may not have international circulation, regional scientists publish their results abroad because national journals do not share their results with the international scientific community or because they are endogamic for the institutions financing the research.
For example, communities with low levels of knowledge use are generally endogamic and have low international collaboration.
