Description
Mice heterozygous for the RosaHD mutant allele are viable and fertile. These mice have the neuropathogenic polyQ-mutant variant of the human Huntingtin protein (mhtt-exon1; 103Q) inserted into the Gt(ROSA)26Sor locus. Expression of mhtt-exon1 is blocked by an upstream loxP-flanked transcriptional STOP sequence. When bred to mice with a Cre recombinase gene under the control of a promoter of interest, the STOP sequence is deleted in the tissue of interest, and mhtt-exon1 expression is observed. As these RosaHD mutant mice allow cre-conditional expression of the neuropathogenic mhtt-exon1 protein, they may be useful in studying Huntington's disease (HD) or other polyQ disorders. Of note, sequencing of the polyQ region (using mice from the 11th backcross) indicate the actual number of repeats to be 98.

For example, when bred to strains expressing cre in brain tissues (such as Nestin-Cre (see Stock No. 003771) or Emx1-Cre (see Stock No. 005628), bi-transgenic offspring show pathological cell-cell interactions critically contribute to cortical pathogenesis of HD.

Development
A targeting vector was designed with a loxP-flanked transcriptional STOP sequence immediately upstream of a polyQ-mutant form of the human Huntingtin protein exon 1 (mhtt-exon1) sequence (containing 103 mixed CAA-CAG repeats, each encoding glutamine), all followed by a polyadenylation sequence. This targeting construct was incorporated into the Gt(ROSA)26Sor locus via electroporation into (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-derived R1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were microinjected into C57BL/6J blastocysts. The resulting "RosaHD" mutant mice were subsequently backcrossed to C57BL/6J mice for at least 11 generations prior to arrival at The Jackson Laboratory. Of note, sequencing of the polyQ region (using mice from the 11th backcross) indicate the actual number of repeats to be 98.

Expressed Gene HTT, huntingtin, human
Molecular Note A targeting vector was designed with a loxP-flanked transcriptional STOP sequence immediately upstream of a neuropathogenic polyQ-mutant form of the human Huntingtin protein exon 1 (mhtt-exon1) sequence (containing 103 mixed CAA-CAG repeats, each encoding glutamine), all followed by a polyadenylation sequence. When these mice are bred with animals expressing cre under the control of a promoter of interest, The STOP signal is deleted in tissue of interest allowing conditional expression of mhtt1-exon1.

Health & husbandry

The genotypes of the animals provided may not reflect those discussed in the strain description or the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation. Please inquire for possible genotypes for this specific strain.

Health & Colony Maintenance Information

Animal Health Reports

Production of mice from cryopreserved embryos or sperm occurs in a maximum barrier room, G200.

Colony Maintenance

Breeding & HusbandryWhen maintaining a live colony, heterozygous mice may be bred to wildtype siblings or to C57BL/6J inbred mice. While presumed to be viable and fertile, the phenotype of homozygous mice has not been reported (Aug-2007).

Cryopreserved

Cryopreserved Mice - Ready for Recovery

Price (US dollars $)
Cryorecovery* $2140.00
Animals Provided

At least two mice that carry the mutation (if it is a mutant strain) will be provided. Their genotypes may not reflect those discussed in the strain description. Please inquire for possible genotypes and see additional details below.

Standard Supply

Cryopreserved. Ready for recovery. Please refer to pricing and supply notes on the strain data sheet for further information.

Supply Notes

  • 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 will fulfill 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.
