Description
This transgenic mouse strain overexpresses human nuclear sterol regulatory element binding protein-1c in adipose tissue under the control of the adipocyte-specific aP2 promoter. The phenotype of transgenic mice resembles congenital generalized lipodystrophy (CGL), a rare autosomal recessive disorder in humans. CGL is characterized by an insufficiency of adipose tissue which is evident at birth and is accompanied by a severe insulin resistance leading to symptoms of type II diabetes mellitis, (hyperinsulinemia and hyperglycemia), and an enlarged fatty liver. Transgenic mice exhibit these symptoms showing defects in differentiation of white fat accompanied by an hypertrophy of brown fat that resembles immature white fat.

Development
A transgene was prepared encoding amino acids 1 - 436 of human SREBF1c driven by a 5.4 kb DNA fragment containing the adipose specific enhancer/promoter of the gene encoding aP2. The truncated SREBF1c lacks the membrane-attachment domain and enters the nucleus directly without a requirement for proteolysis. The Founder Line is 988-4, designated as 9884 as a "-" cannot be used in transgenic nomenclature.

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.
