Chromosome 13
Gene Common Name(s) 1810032E07Rik; 5830469M23Rik; ECTD11A; ECTD11B; ED3; EDA3; RGD1564010; RIKEN cDNA 1810032E07 gene; RIKEN cDNA 5830469M23 gene; cr; crinkled;
General Note Appeared in the progeny of a male treated with nitrogen mustard. Homozygotes have coats that are thinner than normal and contain only one type of hair resembling an abnormal awl, rather than the four types of hair of the normal coat. There is a bald patch behind the ears, bald tail, kinks at the tail tip, absence of Meibomian glands, a respiratory disorder, modification of the agouti pattern (J:13040), abnormal molars and incisors (J:12999, J:5018, J:5139), and probably abnormalities of many exocrine glands (J:5193). Viability and breeding performance are somewhat reduced (J:13040). Myelin abnormalities have been described in the brains of old crinkled mice (J:5870). Hair follicle initiation is restricted to the period between 17 days of gestation and birth, rather than extending from 14 days of gestation to several days after birth as in normal mice (J:13040). Heterozygotes have normal coats, but many have slight abnormalities of the upper molars (J:5018). The site of gene action inskin of cr/cr mice has been shown, by means of dermal-epidermal recombination grafts of embryonic skin, to be in the epidermis (J:5774). The level of copper in liver is low in young cr/cr mice and the level of activity in liver of the copper-containing enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) is also low in both young and adult mice (J:6230). Copper supplementation of the diet of mothers during pregnancy and lactation increases survival of homozygotes, improves coat development, and raises SOD activityand liver copper concentration to normal (J:5568, J:6230).
Molecular Note PCR analysis of genomic DNA showed that the entire coding region of the gene is deleted. Northern analysis failed to detect transcript in skin RNA from homozygous mutant animals at E18.5. [MGI Ref ID J:73357] [MGI Ref ID J:75381]
 
Allele Symbol a
Allele Name nonagouti
Allele Type Spontaneous
Strain of Originold mutant of the mouse fancy
Gene Symbol and Name a, nonagouti
Chromosome 2
Gene Common Name(s) AGSW; AGTI; AGTIL; ASP; As; SHEP9; agouti; agouti signal protein; agouti suppressor;
General Note Phenotypic Similarity to Human Syndrome: Metabolic Syndrome in mice homozygous for Apoetm1Unc and heterozygous for Ay and a (J:177084)
Molecular Note Characterization of this allele shows an insertion of DNA comprised of a 5.5kb virus-like element, VL30, into the first intron of the agouti gene. The VL30 element itself contains an additional 5.5 kb sequence, flanked by 526 bp of direct repeats. The host integration site is the same as for at-2Gso and Aw-38J and includes a duplication of four nucleotides of host DNA and a deletion of 2 bp from the end of each repeat. Northern analysis of mRNA from skin of homozygotes shows a smaller agouti message and levels 8 fold lower than found in wild-type. [MGI Ref ID J:16984] [MGI Ref ID J:24934]

Cryopreserved Mice - Ready for Recovery

Price (US dollars $)
Cryorecovery* $3300.00
Animals Provided

At least two mice that carry the mutation (if it is a mutant strain) will be provided. Their genotypes may not reflect those discussed in the strain description. Please inquire for possible genotypes and see additional details below.

Standard Supply

Cryopreserved. Ready for recovery. Please refer to pricing and supply notes on the strain data sheet for further information.

Supply Notes

  • Cryorecovery - Standard.
    Progeny testing is not required.

    The average number of mice provided from recovery of our cryopreserved strains is 10. The total number of animals provided, their gender and genotype will vary. We will fulfill your order by providing at least two pair of mice, at least one animal of each pair carrying the mutation of interest. Please inquire if larger numbers of animals with specific genotype and genders are needed. Animals typically ship between 10 and 14 weeks from the date of your order. If a second cryorecovery is needed in order to provide the minimum number of animals, animals will ship within 25 weeks. IMPORTANT NOTE: The genotypes of animals provided may not reflect the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation, or that discussed in the strain description. Please inquire about possible genotypes which will be recovered for this specific strain. The Jackson Laboratory cannot guarantee the reproductive success of mice shipped to your facility. If the mice are lost after the first three days (post-arrival) or do not produce progeny at your facility, a new order and fee will be necessary.

    Cryorecovery to establish a Dedicated Supply for greater quantities of mice. Mice recovered can be used to establish a dedicated colony to contractually supply you mice according to your requirements. Price by quotation. For more information on Dedicated Supply, please contact JAX® Services, Tel: 1-800-422-6423 (from U.S.A., Canada or Puerto Rico only) or 1-207-288-5845 (from any location).

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.
