Availability:

Level 4


      Cell Line: NZW/LacJ-PB35.17 mES cells

Common Names: New Zealand White;    
NZW mice have a normal lifespan but do develop anti-DNA antibodies, high serum levels of retroviral gp70 antigen, and nephritis later in life. F1 hybrids of NZB/BlNJ and NZW/LacJ (Stock No. 100008) are widely used as a model for autoimmune disease resembling human systemic lupus erythematosus.

Description
NZW mice have a normal lifespan but do develop anti-DNA antibodies, high serum levels of retroviral gp70 antigen, and nephritis later in life. F1 hybrids of NZB/BlNJ and NZW/LacJ (Stock No. 100008) are widely used as a model for autoimmune disease resembling human systemic lupus erythematosus.

Development
The New Zealand White inbred strain (NZW) was produced by WH Hall in 1952 by inbreeding an outbred mouse colony and selection for white coat color. Dr. SE Bernstein at The Jackson Laboratory obtained NZW mice from the Laboratory Animal Center, Carshalton, Surrey (Lac) in 1981 and were subsequently transferred to the production colony. The current generation of inbreeding of NZW/LacJ mice is F48+.

Genes & Alleles

Gene & Allele Information provided by MGI

 
Allele Symbol PctpR120H
Allele Name R120H
Allele Type Spontaneous
Strain of OriginNZO
Gene Symbol and Name Pctp, phosphatidylcholine transfer protein
Chromosome 11
Gene Common Name(s) PC-TP; STARD2;
Molecular Note A G to A transition in exon 4 resulted in the arginine to histidine substitution at amino acid 120 in NZO, NZB/BINJ and NZW/LacJ strains. This mutation rendered the protein was inactive. [MGI Ref ID J:114974]

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.
