Description
Rip2 KO mice contain a neo cassette in reverse orientation in place of exons 2-3 of the Ripk2 (receptor (TNFRSF)-interacting serine-threonine kinase 2) gene. Cytokine production in macrophages is reduced in homozygotes upon stimulation with lipopolysaccharide, peptidoglycan and double-stranded RNA, but not with bacterial DNA. RIPK2 deficient cells are also hyporesponsive to signaling through IL1 and IL18 interleukin receptors, and deficient for signaling through NOD (nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain) proteins. T cells show severely reduced NFKB (nuclear factor of kappa light chain gene enhancer in B-cells) activation, IL2 production and proliferation on T cell receptor (TCR) engagement, and impaired differentiation to T-helper subtype 1 (TH1)cells. Western blot analysis of thymocytes demonstrates the absence of protein in homozygous mutant mice. Homozygotes are viable and fertile.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to replace exons 2-3 of the receptor (TNFRSF)-interacting serine-threonine kinase 2 (Ripk2) gene, encoding the active site aspartate residue, with a loxP-flanked neomycin resistance cassette in the opposite orientation to the gene. The vector was linearized and injected into 129S1/Sv-derived W9.5 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Targeted clones were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. Resultant chimeric mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6 for 10 generations by the donating laboratory (see SNP note below). Upon arrival at The Jackson Laboratory, mice were bred to C57BL/6J (Stock No. 000664) for at least one generation to establish the colony.

A 32 SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) panel analysis, with 27 markers covering all 19 chromosomes and the X chromosome, as well as 5 markers that distinguish between the C57BL/6J and C57BL/6N substrains, was performed on the rederived living colony at The Jackson Laboratory Repository. One of the 27 markers on Chromosome 4 is segregating, likly due to targeted mutation. All 5 markers that determine C57BL/6J from C57BL/6N were found to be segregating. These data suggest the mice sent to The Jackson Laboratory Repository were on a C57BL/6N genetic background.

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.
