The effect of symmetry lowering for the parameters of electron transport in rare-earth dodecaborides RB12
(R = Ho, Er, Tm, Lu) with fcc crystal structure at temperatures T ≤ 150 K has been discovered. It has been
shown that the anisotropy of the magnetoresistance increases sharply at the transition to the disordered cageglass
phase below T∗ ∼ 60К. This effect is observed in magnetic and nonmagnetic rare-earth dodecaborides,
including solid solutions RxLu1 – xB12 with high substitutional disorder. The role of the electron phase separation
(charge stripes along the〈110〉direction) in these metals with open trajectories on the Fermi surface is
discussed.
