Common Names: R3;    
RIIIS/J mice have prolonged bleeding times with normal platelet activity and low levels of factor VIII:C and plasma von Willebrand factor antigen, making it a good animal model for human von Willebrand disease. RIIIS/J mice also produce a low antibody response to several bacterial polysaccharide antigens and are reported to be resistant to collagen induced arthritis. RIIIS/J mice carry a spontaneous mutation, ldis1, that leads to a partial or complete disruption of the lens and cataract formation.

Description
RIIIS/J mice have prolonged bleeding times with normal platelet activity and low levels of factor VIII:C and plasma von Willebrand factor antigen, making it a good animal model for human von Willebrand disease. This bleeding tendency is an incomplete dominant, autosomal trait. RIIIS/J mice also produce a low antibody response to several bacterial polysaccharide antigens and are reported to be resistant to collagen induced arthritis. Despite a B cell immunodeficiency, RIIS/J mice develop severe experimental autoimmune myasthenia gravis (EAMG) (Tuzun et al., 2004).

RIII/J have a high incidence of mammary tumors and ovarian tumors. RIIIS/J mice carry Mtv8, and Mtv14, but high incidence of tumors has not been reported in these mice. In fact, some studies indicate a resistance to chemically induced tumors. RIIIS/J mice have been reported to develop far fewer lung tumors than A/J or SWR/J mice subsequent to Urethan treatment. BALB/c x RIII F1 males are also highly resistant to diethylstilbesterol-cholesterol induced testicular tumors even though BALB/c is highly susceptible. RIIIS/J mice carry a spontaneous mutation, ldis1, that leads to a partial or complete disruption of the lens and cataract (Jablonski M, et al, 2004).

Development
The RIIIS/J strain was developed as follows: an RIII/AnJ female was bred with a SEC/1ReJ male and an F1 female from this cross was bred to an RIII/AnJ male. Then an F1 female from this second mating was bred to an RIII/J male and inbreeding followed.

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.
