Specieslaboratory mouse
 
Donating InvestigatorDr. Rudolf Jaenisch,   Whitehead Institute (MIT)

Appearance
white-bellied agouti
Related Genotype: Aw/Aw

Description
Mice homozygous for the targeted mutation are viable and fertile. Homozygous mutant mice lose sensory neurons in the nodose-petrosal and geniculate ganglia. However, they do not show loss of facial nucleus motor neurons, sympathetic neurons of the superior cervical ganglion, or dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra.

Development
This strain was developed in the lab of Dr. Rudolf Jaenisch at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A targeting vector containing neomycin resistance and phosphoglycerate kinase genes was used to disrupt the entire coding sequence. The construct was electroporated into 129S4/SvJae derived J1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into recipient blastocysts. The resulting chimeric animals were crossed to 129T1/Sv-p+ Tyrc-ch Dnd1Ter mice. The mice were then crossed to 129S1/SvImJ (Stock No. 2448) for cryopreservation.

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.
