Mice homozygous for the LeprLeu985 mutant allele (or l/l mice) have a Tyr->Leu replacement at amino acid residue 985 of the leptin receptor long form (LRb)-specific exon 18b that specifically disrupts LRb-SHP2 and LRb-SOCS3 transcription factor signaling, and may be useful for studying the influence of LRb-SHP2 and LRb-SOCS3 signaling in the physiological and metabolic function of leptin; specifically body energy homeostasis and neuroendocrine function, glucose homeostasis, melanocortin production, neuropeptide Y, obesity, diabetes, fertility and growth.

Description
Mice homozygous for the LeprLeu985 mutant allele (or l/l mice) are viable and fertile with a Tyr->Leu replacement at amino acid residue 985 of the leptin receptor long form (LRb)-specific exon 18b. The mutation specifically disrupts LRb-SHP2 and LRb-SOCS3 transcription factor signaling. The mutant protein, LRbL985, is expressed normally and mediates other leptin signals normally, but fails to recruit SHP2 or SOCS3. Homozygous male and female mice are neuroendocrinologically normal, but homozygous females may exhibit decreased feeding, body weight, adipocity, circulating leptin, circulating insulin, expression of orexigenic neuropeptides, protection from high-fat diet-induced obesity, and increased leptin sensitivity depending upon diet and genetic background. Homozygous LeprLeu985 mutant mice may be useful for studying the influence of LRb-SHP2 and LRb-SOCS3 signaling in the physiological and metabolic function of leptin; specifically body energy homeostasis and neuroendocrine function, glucose homeostasis, melanocortin production, neuropeptide Y, obesity, diabetes, fertility and growth.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to replace the tyrosine residue at amino acid 985 of the leptin receptor long form (LRb)-specific exon 18b of the targeted gene with a leucine residue (generating a novel HindIII site and also inserting a neo cassette downstream of exon 18b). The donating investigator reports that the construct was electroporated into (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-derived R1 embryonic stem (ES) cells and the resulting chimeric animals were bred with C57BL/6NCrl mice to generate LeprLeu985 mutant mice. These mice were then backcrossed to C57BL/6NCrl using a speed congenic approach for six generations prior to arrival at The Jackson Laboratory. Upon arrival, mutant mice were bred with C57BL/6NJ (Stock No. 005304) for at least one generation to establish the 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.
