The frequencies of hypervariable DNA markers in three mouse lines, two selected for ^ P™dDUCtl^e lonSev«y and one unselected control, were examined using multilocus DNA fingerprinting (DNFP). Frequency of nine of 31 bands analyzed differed significantly (P < .05) between the selected and control lines. The changes in the frequency of DNFP bands for the two selected lines were consistent. These results indicate that the differences in DNFP patterns were due to the selection practised, suggesting a putative association of the DNFP patterns with reproductive longevity in mice.
