An outbred strain of rats developed in 1915 by crossing several Wistar Institute white females with a wild gray male. Inbred strains have been derived from this original outbred strain, including Long-Evans cinnamon rats (Rats, Inbred lec) and Otsuka-Long-Evans-Tokushima Fatty rats (Rats, Inbred oletf), which are models for Wilson's disease and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, respectively.
