Description
Mice homozygous for the targeted mutation are viable, fertile, normal in size, and do not display any behavioral abnormalities when maintained under barrier conditions. No transcripts from the targeted gene are detected in bone marrow. Homozygous mice have normal T and B cell development but elevated IgG1 and decreased IgG2a, IgG3, and IgA in serum. In standard models of airway hyperresponsiveness (intraperitoneal (i.p.) sensitization followed by aerosol challenge), mutant mice are protected from allergic airway disease. Following epicutaneous, but not i.p., sensitization, homozygotes have significantly greater serum IgG1, dermal eosinophilia, and splenocyte Th2 cytokine secretion. Antigen presenting cells from null mice induce stronger Th2 responses. This mutant may be suitable for use in studies related to asthma, allergic skin disease, T helper cell polarization/B cell isotype switching, and other Th2- and innate-immunity studies.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to replace 736 base pairs of the N-terminal region of the targeted gene (including the start codon) with a mouse phosphoglycerate kinase promoter driven neomycin resistance gene. The construct was electroporated into the 129S4/SvJae-derived J1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. The resulting chimeric males were backcrossed to BALB/cAnNCrl females. Heterozygotes were mated to BALB/cAnNCrl mice for 15 generations before arriving at The Jackson Laboratory. Upon arrival, mutants were bred to BALB/cJ mice for one generation. The resulting heterozygotes were bred together to create a homozygous colony.

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.
