  • N. Ihara
Short Communications Genetics, Developmental Biology, Aging


A new rat strain has been developed, in which a spontaneous cataract occurs without exception at 3–4 months after birth and matures completely at 4–6 months of age, indicating that this rare strain possesses a maturity-onset cataract. In the present report, histological data are presented and discussed.
