Description
Transgenic mice are viable, fertile, and normal in size. This mutant carries a transgene for a fully functional bovine and mouse type II collagen (260-267) specific IAq-restricted T cell receptor. Flow cytometric analysis show 90% Tcrb-V8.3 expression of CD4+ splenocytes and greater than 95% expression in CD4+ lymphocytes. The transgene confers severe accelerated autoimmune arthritis following type II collagen (CII) immunization. Splenocytes from tolerized mice have altered activation and memory cell surface markers and high levels of Th2 cytokine secretion compared to control. Estradiol completely prevents collagen-induced arthritis (CIA). This mutant mouse may be useful in studies of CIA, rheumatoid arthritis, and T regulatory cells and may also serve as a source of T cells that mediate development of autoimmune diseases.

Development
Transgenic constructs containing the mouse alpha and beta chain of the T cell receptor recognizing both bovine and mouse type II collagen (260-267) were cloned from the Tcra-V11.1,Tcra-J(J17) and Tcrb-V8.3,Tcrb-D(D1),Tcrb-J(J1.4) expressing I-Aq-restricted T cell hybridoma qCII85.33. The constructs were co-injected into pronuclei of (C57BL/6 x C3H)F1 eggs. PCR-positive mice (founder line 24) were backcrossed to DBA/1LacJ for 8 generations.

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.
