Cultured LPS stimulated bone marrow derived macrophages from homozygous animals secrete less IL1 beta and IL1 alpha; IL18 is undetectable when compared with hemizygous and wild-type controls. Diabetes frequency of Casp1tm1Sesh deficient animals is equivalent to NOD/Lt, heterozygote and wild-type controls. This strain is a useful model for studying the role of IL1 and IL18 cytokines in inflammatory processes relating to diabetes.

Description
Casp1tm1Sesh homozygous mice are viable, fertile, normal in size, and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. There is no detectable expression of Casp1 in spleen by northern blot analysis or by RT-PCR of peritoneal exudate cells, brain, lung, heart, liver, adrenal gland, kidney, testis, and thymus (Li et al, 1995). Cultured LPS stimulated bone marrow derived macrophages from homozygous NOD.129S2(B6)- Casp1tm1Sesh /LtJ animals secrete 4-fold less IL1 beta, 30% less IL1 alpha, and IL18 is undetectable when compared with hemizygous and wild-type controls. Diabetes frequency of Casp1tm1Sesh deficient animals is equivalent to NOD/Lt, heterozygote and wild-type controls. Weanling Casp1tm1Sesh homozygous animals injected with Complete Freund's adjuvant and young pre-diabetic males treated with multiple low dose streptozotocin behave similarly to control (wild type, heterozygote, or NOD/Lt) animals (Schott et al, 2004). NOD.129S2(B6)- Casp1tm1Sesh/LtJ is a useful model for studying the role of IL1 and IL18 cytokines in inflammatory processes relating to diabetes.

Development
A construct containing a neomycin expression cassette inserted into exon 6 of Casp1 (cloned from a 129/Sv mouse), deleting 31 bp of sequence encoding the region of the catalytic active site and rendering the sequence out of frame after the insertion, was transfected into D3 (129S2/SvPas derived) embryonic stem cells (ES cells). These ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. Chimeric founders were initially mated to C57BL/6 and subsequently intercrossed to generate homozygotes (Li et al, 1995). In 1998, Dr. Edward Leiter at The Jackson Laboratory received B6.129S2-Casp1tm1Sesh mice from Dr. Winnie Wong, BASF Bioresearch Corporation and backcrossed this mutation to NOD/Lt for 10 generations, subsequently intercrossing to generate homozygotes (Schott et al. 2004). In 2004, NOD.129S2(B6)- Casp1tm1Sesh /LtJ homozygous strain at N10F11 was transferred from Edward Leiter's research colony to a Jackson Laboratory distribution colony.

Strain of Origin129S2/SvPas
ES Cell Line NameD3

Gene Symbol and Name Casp1, caspase 1
Chromosome 9
Gene Common Name(s) Caspase-1; ICE; IL1BC; Il1bc; P45; interleukin 1 beta convertase; interleukin 1 beta-converting enzyme;
General Note The ES cells used to generate this allele contain the linked Casp4del truncated allele that fails to produce a functional Casp4. Phenotypes associated with this allele may be affected by the presence of the Caspdel allele. J:193522
Molecular Note A neomycin expression cassette was inserted into exon 6, deleting 31 bp of sequence encoding the region of the active site and rendering the sequence out of frame after the insertion. Northern blot analysis on spleen RNA demonstrated an absence of the normal transcript in homozygous mice, and western blot analysis showed that the protein was not expressed in peritoneal macrophages of homozygous mice. This allele was generated in ES cells that lack protein expression of Casp11 (Casp129mt). [MGI Ref ID J:22964]

Molecular Note RT-PCR confirmed that five 129 substrains (129X1/SvJ, 129S1/SvImJ, 129S2/SvPas, 129S6/SvEvTac and 129P3/J) express a transcript that lacks exon 7 (delta110 isoform). Sequencing identified a 5 bp deletion in exon 7 that results in the fusion of exon 6 and8, a frame-shift after proline 304 and a stop codon after 5 aberrant amino acids. This deletion is not present in C57BL/6. Western blot analysis confirmed the absence of protein expression in LPS-primed macrophage. [MGI Ref ID J:193522]

Repository-Live represents an exclusive set of over 1800 unique mouse models across a vast array of research areas. Breeding colonies provide mice for large and small orders and fluctuate in size depending on current research demand. If a strain is not immediately available, you will receive an estimated availability timeframe for your inquiry or order in 2-3 business days. Repository strains typically are delivered at 4 to 8 weeks of age. Requests for specific ages will be noted but not guaranteed and we do not accept age requests for breeder pairs. However, if cohorts of mice (5 or more of one gender) are needed at a specific age range for experiments, we will do our best to accommodate your age request.

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.
