The CXB set of RI strains is used in the genetic analysis of numerous complex or potentially complex physiologic phenotypes including differences in thyroid function (Graves' disease) and pulmonary inflammation as well as behavioral phenotypes including avoidance, exploration and locomotor activity. The CXB set is derived from the BALBc/ByJ (Stock No. 001026) and C57BL/6ByJ (Stock No. 001139) progenitor strains.

Description
The CXB set of RI strains is used in the genetic analysis of numerous complex or potentially complex physiologic phenotypes including differences in thyroid function (Graves' disease), contact dermatitis and pulmonary inflammation as well as behavioral phenotypes including avoidance, exploration and locomotor activity. The CXB set is so small that markers on different chromosomes occasionally have almost precisely the same SDP. This produces high non-syntenic association and false linkage between variance in phenotypes and genotypes. Please examine the correlation coefficients of markers close to interest loci with ALL other markers to evaluate the risk of non-syntenic association.

The strain distribution pattern (SDP) for the CXB 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.

Like BALB/cByJ, this recombinant inbred carries the mutation hippocampal lamination defect or Hld, an allele responsible for abnormal neuronal migration to the pyramidal cell layer (Nowakowski RS, et al, Jnl Neurogen, 1984).

Development
The original 11 CXB recombinant inbred (RI) lines were generated at the National Institutes of Health by Dr. Donald Bailey (labcode By) starting in 1959. After moving to The Jackson Laboratory in 1967, an additional set of 6 strains was created with the help of Jo Hilgers (Labcode Hi). The CXB set is derived from the BALBc/ByJ (Stock No. 001026) and C57BL/6ByJ (Stock No. 001139) progenitor strains. CXB1 through CXB7 originally were designated using letters. Several of the original strains are extinct. The Jackson Laboratory currently distributes 7 of the original By strains and 6 of the Hi strains.

Genes & Alleles

Gene & Allele Information provided by MGI

 
Allele Symbol Ahrb-2
Allele Name b-2 variant
Allele Type Not Applicable
Common Name(s) Ahb-2; Ahh;
Strain of OriginBALB/cBy
Gene Symbol and Name Ahr, aryl-hydrocarbon receptor
Chromosome 12
Gene Common Name(s) Ah; Ahh; Ahre; In; aromatic hydrocarbon responsiveness; aryl hydrocarbon hydroxylase; bHLHe76; dioxin receptor; inflammatory reactivity;
General Note C57BL/6 carries the responsive Ahrb allele; DBA/2 carries nonresponsive Ahrd. Heterozygotes (Ahrb/Ahrd) are responsive (J:5282). Later work identified a second (J:8895) and later a third (J:22144) allele conferring response. Thus the allele in C57, C58, and MA/My strains is now Ahrb-1; Ahrb-2 is carried by BALB/cBy, A, and C3H; and Ahrb-3 by Mus spretus, M. caroli, and MOLF/Ei. The nonresponsive strains AKR, DBA/2, and 129 carry Ahrd (J:22144). Nucleotide and amino acid sequence differences between Ahrb-1 and Ahrd have been determined (J:17460).

Strain of origin - this allele was found in BALB/cByJ, A/J, C3H/HeJ, CBA strains

Molecular Note This allele encodes a high affinity, heat labile, 104 kDa receptor containing 848 amino acids. Sequencing studies of cDNA from C57BL/6J congenic mice homozygous for this allele identified nucleotide substitutions in the ORF that would cause 5 amino acid differences between the C57BL/6J and BALB/cBy peptides, and 2 amino acid differences between the BALB/cBy and DBA/2J peptides. A T to C transition in exon 11 replaces the opal termination codon in the C57BL/6J allele with an arginine codon in the BALB/cByallele. This change would extend translation of the BALB/cBy mRNA by 43 amino acids, accounting for the larger size of the peptide produced by this allele (104 kDa, vs 95 kDa for the C57BL/6J allele). [MGI Ref ID J:15153] [MGI Ref ID J:22144]
 
Allele Symbol Hld
Allele Name hippocampal lamination defect
Allele Type Spontaneous
Strain of OriginBALB/cJ
Gene Symbol and Name Hld, hippocampal lamination defect
Chromosome UN
General Note Abnormal laminar organization of the pyramidal layer of the cerebellum, particularly in the proximal segment of the layer, occurs in the BALB/cJ strain. In normal strains, the latest formed or youngest neurons migrate past the earlier formed or older neurons to a position in the pyramidal layer that is superficial to that of the older cells. In BALB/cJ, the positions are reversed, with the older cells lying superior to the younger ones (J:5787). Since mossy fibers form synapses primarily with the older cells, this aberrant pattern of cell migration in BALB/c leads to a different pattern of mossy-fiber synapses, easily visualized with Timm's stain (J:5486). The dendritic excrescences induced by contact with mossy fibers on late-generated pyramidal cells in +/+ mice occur at sites on both the apical and basal dendrites; in Hld/Hld mice, they occur in two sites on the apical dendrites only (J:12029).

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.
