Important Note
Males of this strain carry the BXSB-derived Yaa mutation on the Y chromosome.

Description
The Y-linked autoimmune accelerator locus (Yaa) on the Y chromosome of BXSB inbred male mice is the result of a duplication of an ~4 Mbp telomeric segment near the pseudoautosomal region of the X chromosome onto the Y chromosome. The duplicated segment contains 19 genes, including toll-like receptor 7 (Tlr7) and phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase 2 (Prps2). BXSB males have the mutant Yaa-containing Y chromosome, and are a model for a severe form of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Their spontaneously arising autoimmune disease is characterized by the robust development of follicular T cells and germinal centers. Marginal zone B cells are depleted in BXSB-Yaa mice and a dramatic increase in number of peripheral monocytes is seen beginning at two months of age. Disease progression is characterized by lymph node and spleen enlargement, hemolytic anemia, hypergammaglobulinemia, anti-nuclear antibodies, and immune complex glomerulonephritis. This leads to morbidity on average of six months of age. BXSB females develop a greatly attenuated form of autoimmune disease; indicating that autoimmune disease acceleration is due to the presence of the Yaa mutation carried on the Y chromosome.

A duplicated copy of the Tlr7 gene is primarily responsible for the autoimmune phenotype attributed to the Yaa mutation. The BXSB-Yaa mouse therefore provides a model for investigating the effects copy number variation of Tlr7 on autoimmune disease. Therapeutic treatment of BXSB-Yaa mice with an anti-Type I interferon receptor antibody attenuates their autoimmune disease; indicating that Type I interferon signaling involved is in the pathogenesis of this disease.

The most suitable control animals are sex-matched, autoimmune disease-resistant BXSB.B6-Yaa+ consomic males carrying the C57BL/6-derived Y chromosome in place of the BXSB-derived mutant Yaa-containing Y chromosome. BXSB.B6-Yaa+ consomic mice (backcrossed to BXSB/MpJ inbred females for at least 40 generations) are described and available at The Jackson Laboratory as Stock No. 021330.

A note on outcrossing BXSB males with other inbred females: similar autoimmune disease acceleration occurs in males (but not in females) from an outcross of BXSB males to NZB females. Acceleration does not occur in offspring of the reciprocal cross. The same effect of Yaa is seen in offspring of outcrosses to strains SJL, C57BL/6, and AKR.

In addition, BXSB males lacking the interleukin 21 receptor (BXSB-Yaa/Il21r-/- or BXSB-Yaa/Il21-/-) are highly resistant to disease and are therefore a model for investigating the role of interleukin 21 in disease pathogenesis. Populations of regulatory CD8+ and potentially natural killer cells are also actively retarding disease in this model; making them useful to investigate the roles of such regulatory cells in autoimmune disease.

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.

Control Information

  Control
   Female from the colony
   See control note: The most suitable control animals are sex-matched, autoimmune disease-resistant BXSB.B6-Yaa+ consomic males carrying the C57BL/6-derived Y chromosome in place of the BXSB-derived mutant Yaa-containing Y chromosome. BXSB.B6-Yaa+ consomic mice are available with different amounts of backcrossing to BXSB/MpJ inbred females:
--Stock No. 021330 are backcrossed at least 40 generations,
--Stock No. 001925 are backcrossed at least 22 generations, and
--Stock No. 000742 are backcrossed at least 10 generations.

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.
