The relationship between the gene(s) responsible for the susceptibility of C3HeB/FeJ mice to the other known S. typhimurium resistance gene loci was investigated using a gene complementation analysis. C3HeB/FeJ female mice were bred to several other susceptible inbred strains and the F1 hybrid progeny were tested for S. typhimurium susceptibility. The findings indicate that the C3Heb/FeJ susceptibility gene is distinct from these other resistance gene loci.
