M.MOL-MSM (MSM) mice derived from Mus musculus molossinus progenitors showed extreme resistance to the induction of lymphomas following whole-body X-irradiation with four doses of 1.7 Gy. (BALB/cHeA × MSM) F1 mice between a high lymphoma strain, BALB/cHeA and the MSM showed a high incidence of radiation-induced lymphomas which was quite similar to that in BALB/cHeA mice, but the latent period was prolonged in the hybrids. Susceptibility in incidence was dominant over resistance in these crosses. Incidences of (BALB/cHeA × MSM)F1 hybrids irradiated with four doses of 2.5 Gy X-rays were 77% in females and 88% in males. F1 hybrids between BALB/cHeA and another resistant strain STS/A, (BALB/cHeA × STS/A) F1, also showed a high level of susceptibility, that is, lymphoma incidence was 64% in females and 63% in males. The mean latent period in the (BALB/cHeA × STS/A) F1 hybrids was similar to that in (BALB/cHeA × MSM) F1 hybrids. As all cases of tumors developed in F1 hybrids are informative concerning the detection of the loss of heterozygosity in the loci depending on the combination of two parental strains, the radiation-induced lymphomas obtained from (BALB/cHeA × MSM) F1 and (BALB/cHeA × STS/A) F1 hybrids could be useful for fine analysis of the genetic alterations involved in lymphomagenesis.
