Description
DNAH11 is important for developmental control of organ positioning in the left-right axis such that homozygosity for the situs inversus viscerum (iv) mutant allele can result not only in inverse placement of the visceral and thoracic organs, but also in anomalous positioning and interactions of blood vessels (including the hepatic portal, inferior vena cava, and azygos vein) and modified shape of organs and blood vessels, including abnormal lobation of lungs or liver. Approximately 50% of mice homozygous for Dnah11iv have situs inversus, and the likelihood of situs inversus is not impacted by whether the homozygous parent has situs inversus. This indicates that wild type Dnah11 instructs left-right asymmetry, and in the absence of functional Dnah11 the direction of this asymmetry is random. Heterotaxia is found in less than half of homozygotes and occurs equally in those that do and do not have situs inversus. While heterotaxia may be impacted by genetic background, the incidence of situs inversus has not shown this variation. Situs inversus can be identified shortly after birth, until the skin thickens at approximately day 5, by viewing the location of the milk-filled stomach through the skin. Homozygotes are generally viable and do breed, although poorreproductive performance with a high rate of resorption has been reported by Brown et al. (Development 1989). Some premature death has been reported and may be caused by deformities of the cardiac loop. (Hummel and Chapman, 1959; Layton 1976; Brown et al., 1989; Icardo and Colvee, 2001.)

Development
In 1956 Katherine Hummel reported finding situs inversus viscerum (iv) in 6 out of 42 mice in the F3 generation from a cross of a C3H/e female with an my/my male. This my/my male was likely from the line that was then being inbred to become My/Hu (see stock#000265). The my mutation was bred out of this new mutant stock and in 1972 the iv-bearing stock was transferred from Katherine Hummel to Robert Collins, both at The Jackson Laboratory. Collins began inbreeding from the outbred stock in 1975 and this generated the strain SI/Col (see stock#001045) which is homozygous for Dnah11iv, a, and Tyrp1b. SI/Col reached F62 in 1994. At some point the Dnah11iv mutation was bred onto 129/Sv-ter but the details of this breeding have been lost. In 1981 males homozygous for Dnah11iv on the 129/Sv-ter background were bred to C57BL/6J females to generate embryos for cryopreservation.

General Note About 50 per cent of homozygotes showed left-right transposition of stomach and abdominal viscera. About half of all the homozygotes showed discordance in asymmetry between the stomach and the major abdominal and thoracic veins, the discordance occurringwith similar frequency in mice with normal and reversed viscera. In the stock examined by Hummel and Chapman (J:212) penetrance was found to be 71 per cent when mice were classified by both these criteria. Layton (J:5788) has postulated that the wild-type allele of the Dnahc11 locus is necessary for development of the normal asymmetrical configuration of the viscera. In iv/iv mice, this control is absent, allowing random direction of the asymmetry and thus accounting for the fact that only 50 per cent ofthe homozygotes show reversed asymmetry.
Molecular Note A G-to-A transition mutation led to a substitution of a glutamate to a lysine in the encoded protein. This residue is located between the second and third P-loop motifs, a highly conserved region that constitutes the motor domain. [MGI Ref ID J:44093]

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.
