Viability and Fertility Data

These mice are viable as both heterozygotes and homozygotes. Litter sizes can be small (2-3) to moderate (7-9) in size with larger litter sizes very uncommon. Fertility has been noted to be difficult at times usually during lower humidity winter months, but tends to rebound during more humid months.
