Özet

Background: We have generated high- and low-nicotine preferring (high-NP, low-NP) rat lines using voluntary oral nicotine intake as the selection criterion. After nine generations, the estimated realized heritability for high intake was 0.26. The aim of the current study is to compare how nicotine withdrawal varies between these two lines. This new analysis would help elucidate if nicotine withdrawal and intake share common genetic mechanisms.
