Donating InvestigatorDr. Gregg Homanics,   University of Pittsburgh

Appearance

Related Genotype: a/a

Description
Mice that are homozygous null for Gabrd are viable and fertile. Northern blot analysis of -/- adult cerebellar RNA suggests that a chimeric Gabrd/neo transcript is generated from the targeted allele. Western blot analysis fails to detect a Gabrd protein product. Maximal binding for the agonist muscimol was markedly decreased in whole brain homogenates. Consistent with this, in situ autoradiographic analysis indicates a drastic reduction in muscimol binding in most parts of the brain. In general, these mice exhibit a decreased sensitivity to the sedative/hypnotic, anxiolytic and pro-absence effects of neuroactive steroids as determined by sleep time assays, elevated plus-maze assays (measures anxiolytic effect) and the inability of neuroactive steroids to prolong pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures. This decreased sensitivity appears to be selective however, as differential responses to various neuroactive steroids are observed.

Of note, several strains bearing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA-A) receptor mutations are available from this donating investigator (Dr. Gregg Homanics, University of Pittsburgh), including Gabra1 (Stock No. 004318), Gabra4 (Stock No. 006874), Gabra6 (Stock No. 002710), Gabrb3 (Stock No. 002711), Gabrd (Stock No. 003725), and Gabrg2 (Stock No. 003137).

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.
