  1. Pathology classes were based upon the location of AT8 antibody immunostaining
  2. aC57BL/6Tac age-range = 451–758 days; 129/SvEvTac age-range = 466–733 days; FVB/NJ age-range = 451–678 days. Aged animals lacking pathology are not included in this Table but are described in the main text
  3. bAll pair-wise comparisons of mean age for classes I-IV with data pooled from three genetic backgrounds were not significant (n.s.)
  4. c,d,eAll pair-wise comparisons of mean age within a genetic background n.s
  5. Tg mice not present in the table include one C57BL/6Tac animal showing both class II and IV pathologies, one 129/SvEvTac animal showing both class III and IV pathologies while a further 27 animals did not fit within this classification scheme (12 C57BL/6Tac, 8129/SvEvTac and 7 FVB/NJ; see also Fig. 11)
  6. N/A, not applicable
