Dear Listers,

Would you have any suggestions as to strains that differ in the following characteristics.

1. Strains that differ in corticosterone output under normal and/or stressful conditions.

2. Strains that differ in tissue response to steroids e.g. dexamethasone.

3. Strains that differ in response to infectious agents...

I realize these are broad questions particularly #3...but any suggestions would be appreciated.
