Description
Mice homozygous for the Ighmtm1Che allele are viable, fertile and exhibit no apparent defects. While membrane expressed Ighmtm1Che is unhindered, these mice are unable to produce the secreted form of Ighmtm1Che. Increases in some classes of serum Ig is noted in young animals (IgA, IgG2a and IgG3), but these differences are largely absent in the adult animals. The IgG1 antibody response to suboptimal doses of a T cell-dependent antigen is impaired. Conversely, the IgG2a antibody response to a T cell-independent antigen appears augmented. An approximately three-fold increase in B-1 lymphocytes is noted in the spleen and peritoneum.

Molecular Note A targeting vector was constructed in which the exon encoding the secreted form of the immunoglobulin mu (IgM) heavy chain and its three downstream poly(A) sites were replaced by a cDNA fragment encoding the constant region mu4 exon and the exon encodingthe membrane-bound form of IgM. The resultant homozygous mutant mice had B cells that did not secrete IgM, but did express membrane-bound IgM. [MGI Ref ID J:47425]

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.

Unless prohibited by law, in purchasing or receiving MICE, PRODUCTS or services from JACKSON, purchaser or recipient, or any party claiming by or through them, expressly releases and discharges JACKSON from all such causes of action or damages, and further agrees to defend and indemnify JACKSON from any costs or damages arising out of any third party claims.
