Description
Homozygous mice are viable and fertile and do not express full length mRNA in heart, kidney, spleen, white adipose tissue, and pancreatic islets. In splenic mitochondria, endogenous protein was undetectable. When grown under high glucose conditions, cultured pancreatic islet cells from homozygous mice have increased insulin secretion and ATP levels compared to wildtype. Homozygous mice have 18% lower blood glucose levels. Whether fasting or fed, homozygotes have approximately 3-fold greater serum insulin due to increased insulin secretion. Similarly, glucose-stimulated insulin secretion is significantly increased. High fat diet-fed mice or palmitate-treated islets maintain pancreatic glucose responsiveness in vivo and in vitro compared to wildtype. Mitochondria isolated from the dopaminergic mesencephalic nigral cells of homozygous mice have increased reactive oxygen species but lesser mitochondria number and increased sensitivity to MPTP, mimicking Parkinson's disease.

In a recent study (Endocrinology, 2009, Epub Feb 26) it was found that homozygous mutant mice exhibit increased oxidative stress as well as impaired glucose-stimulated insulin secretion, a finding that contrasts from the initial phenotype description. In the publication, it was suggested that the difference could be attributed to the earlier studies being performed on mice with a mixed B6;129S4 genetic background. These later studies, mice on a congenic B6.129S4 genetic background were used.

This mouse may be useful in studies of diabetes, glucose-dependent metabolism-secretion coupling, aerobic respiration, Parkinson,s disease, epilepsy, stroke, and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Development
A targeting vector was created by replacing exons 3-7 of the endogenous gene with a PGK-Neo expression cassette. This construct was electroporated into 129S4/SvJae-derived J1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts and chimeric mice were bred to C57BL/6. The resulting heterozygotes were backcrossed to C57BL/6 mice for 10 generations before arrival at the The Jackson Laboratory.

    Available to most shipping destinations1
    This strain is also available as cryopreserved embryos2. Orders for cryopreserved embryos may be placed with our Customer Service Department. Experienced technicians at The Jackson Laboratory have recovered frozen embryos of this strain successfully. We will provide you enough embryos to perform two embryo transfers. The Jackson Laboratory does not guarantee successful recovery at your facility. For complete information on purchasing embryos, please visit our Cryopreserved Embryos web page.

    1 Shipments cannot be made to Australia due to Australian government import restrictions.
    2 Embryos for most strains are cryopreserved at the two cell stage while some strains are cryopreserved at the eight cell stage. If this information is important to you, please contact Customer Service.
  • Cryorecovery - Standard.
    Progeny testing is not required.

    The average number of mice provided from recovery of our cryopreserved strains is 10. The total number of animals provided, their gender and genotype will vary. We willfulfill your order by providing at least two pair of mice, at least one animal of each pair carrying the mutation of interest. Please inquire if larger numbers of animals with specific genotype and genders are needed. Animals typically ship between 10 and 14 weeks from the date of your order. If a second cryorecovery is needed in order to provide the minimum number of animals, animals will ship within 25 weeks. IMPORTANT NOTE: The genotypes of animals provided may not reflect the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation, or that discussed in the strain description. Please inquire about possible genotypes which will be recovered for this specific strain. The Jackson Laboratory cannot guarantee the reproductive success of mice shipped to your facility. If the mice are lost after the first three days (post-arrival) or do not produce progeny at your facility, a new order and fee will be necessary.

    Cryorecovery to establish a Dedicated Supply for greater quantities of mice. Mice recovered can be used to establish a dedicated colony to contractually supply you mice according to your requirements. Price by quotation. For more information on Dedicated Supply, please contact JAX® Services, Tel: 1-800-422-6423 (from U.S.A., Canada or Puerto Rico only) or 1-207-288-5845 (from any location).

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.
