The BXD set of RI strains is used in the genetic analysis of numerous complex or potentially complex physiologic phenotypes. The BXD strains are derived from the C57BL/6J (Stock No. 000664) and DBA/2J (Stock No. 000671) progenitor strains.

Description
The BXD RI strains are used to study the genetics of behavioral phenotypes including alcohol and drug addiction, stress, and locomotor activity. The BXD set of RI strains also is used in the genetic analysis of numerous complex or potentially complex physiologic phenotypes including differences in organ weight and bone mineral density.

The strain distribution pattern (SDP) for the BXD RI strains is available through the Mouse Genome Informatics Contributed Data Sets and Gene Network. Additional tools and information are presented through the Mouse Phenome Database Specialized Strain Panel Query Form, and Gene Network .

Development
The BXD set of RI strains was developed in the laboratory of Benjamin Taylor and was transferred to The Jackson Laboratory from Dr. Taylor's research colony upon his retirement. Of 42 BXD RI strains originally derived from the C57BL/6J (Stock No. 000664) and DBA/2J (Stock No. 000671), a number have become extinct over the years. The other BXD RI strains now being distributed are listed under "Related Recombinant Inbred Strains."

Molecular Note This mutation is the result of the integration of ecotropic murine leukemia virus Emv-3 into a noncoding region of the Myo5ad gene. Reversions of Myo5ad to wild-type are caused by excision of the virus leaving exactly one long terminal repeat in place. [MGI Ref ID J:6587] [MGI Ref ID J:7092] [MGI Ref ID J:7751]

Repository-Live.
Repository-Live represents an exclusive set of over 1800 unique mouse models across a vast array of research areas. Breeding colonies provide mice for large and small orders and fluctuate in size depending on current research demand. If a strain is not immediately available, you will receive an estimated availability timeframe for your inquiry or order in 2-3 business days. Repository strains typically are delivered at 4 to 8 weeks of age. Requests for specific ages will be noted but not guaranteed and we do not accept age requests for breeder pairs. However, if cohorts of mice (5 or more of one gender) are needed at a specific age range for experiments, we will do our best to accommodate your age request.

The Jackson Laboratory's Genotype Promise

The Jackson Laboratory has rigorous genetic quality control and mutant gene genotyping programs to ensure the genetic background of JAX® Mice strains as well as the genotypes of strains with identified molecular mutations. JAX® Mice strains are only made available to researchers after meeting our standards. However, the phenotype of each strain may not be fully characterized and/or captured in the strain data sheets. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a strain's phenotype will meet all expectations. To ensure that JAX® Mice will meet the needs of individual research projects or when requesting a strain that is new to your research, we suggest ordering and performing tests on a small number of mice to determine suitability for your particular project.
