Description
Mice homozygous for the targeted mutation are viable, fertile, normal in size, and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities when maintained under barrier conditions. No mRNA is detected by Northern blot analysis of bone marrow cells isolated from homozygotes, and neutrophils fail to respond to recombinant C5a in vitro. The immune response of homozygous mice following inoculation or challenge has been characterized on a C57BL/6 background in a number of studies. Following intratracheal inoculation, mutant mice have impaired bacterial clearance in the lungs, associated with extensive secondary infection, despite increased neutrophil accumulation. Conversely, homozygous mutants are protected against immune-complex-associated injury in the lung, peritoneum, skin, and kidney but not against experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. Induced acute pancreatitis and pancreatitis-associated lung injury is more severe in homozygotes compared to wildtype. On a BALB/c background, homozygous mutant mice are more resistant to dermal infection, and lymph node cells have greatly increased antigen recall, as measured by interferon gamma secretion, compared to wild type. Homozygotes fail to develop airway hyper-reactivity in hapten asthma models (background not-identified). This mutant can be used to study many lung-associated diseases, immune complex associated injury, and complement-mediated innate immunity.

Development
A targeting vector containing a mouse phosphoglycerate kinase promoter-driven neomycin resistance gene was used to replace the entire coding region of the endogenous gene. The construct was electroporated into the 129S4/SvJae-derived J1 embryonic stem (ES) cells, and correctly targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. The resulting chimeric males were crossed to C57BL/6 females. Heterozygotes were mated to C57BL/6 mice for 2 generations and then backcrossed 10 generations to BALB/c before being made homozygous. Upon arrival at The Jackson Laboratory, homozygous mice were bred at least one generation to BALB/cJ (Stock No. 000651).

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.
