This C57BL/6J congenic strain is useful because it carries the T lymphocyte specific Thy1a (Thy1.1) allele. Donor T cells can be easily distinguished from recipient T cells by both flow cytometric and histological analysis using appropriate antibodies.
This congenic strain was generated by Evie Sargent in the laboratory of Dr. Marianna Cherry at The Jackson Laboratory beginning sometime between 1968 and 1972. The Thy1 allele from PL/J was bred onto C57BL/6J at The Jackson Laboratory until backcross generation N10 and this strain was then maintained by sibling intercrossing homozygotes.

The Thy1 locus determines a surface antigen present on cells of the thymus, a number of mouse leukemias, brain, and in lesser amounts on lymph node and spleen cells. The allele Thy1a determines an antigenic specificity, Thy-1.1, found in the AKR and RF strains; the allele Thy1b determines an antigenic specificity, Thy-1.2, found in the C3HeB/Fe and many other strains (J:5243, J:5012, J:4469). The Thy1 antigen is probably present on all T lymphocytes and absent from all B lymphocytes, and it thus serves as a valuable T-cell marker (J:5243). It is very widely used in experiments designed to determine the distribution and function of T-cells. Thy1 specifies a T-cell surface glycoprotein, T25, with a molecular weight of 25 kDa (J:5707). The protein appears to be anchored in the cell membrane by a lipid that is either phosphotidylinositol or closely related to it (J:12016). Thy1 may function in the cell membrane as a signal transduction molecule (J:8333). The Thy1 locus, or possibly a gene closely linked to it, controls quantitative expression of a protein that isthe same size as Thy1 and is expressed on thymus and brain but not on lymph node and spleen cells (J:7900).
|Molecular Note||The allele Thy1a determines an antigenic specificity, Thy-1.1, found in the AKR and RF strains.|
