Abstract: The SHN mouse strain, which has a high incidence of mammary cancer, developed by inbreeding and selection from Swiss stock mice by Dr. H. Nagasawa and co-workers (Meiji University, Tokyo, Japan), harbored an endogenous mammary tumor virus (MTV) responsible for a high frequency of mammary tumors early in life. The locus was called Mtv-4 and was only comparable with Mtv-2 of the GR mouse strain in its inducing capacity of mammary cancer. Molecular hybridization with 32P-labeled MTV complementary DNA showed that the characteristic Mtv-2 bands of the GR strain were absent in the SHN strain.
