Mice homozygous for the LeprS1138 mutant allele (or s/s mice) have a Tyr->Ser replacement at amino acid residue 1138 of the leptin receptor long form (LRb)-specific exon 18b that specifically disrupts LRb-STAT3 transcription factor signaling, and may be useful for studying LRb-STAT3 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 LeprS1138 mutant allele (or s/s mice) are viable and partially fertile with a Tyr->Ser replacement at amino acid residue 1138 of the leptin receptor long form (LRb)-specific exon 18b. The mutation specifically disrupts LRb-STAT3 transcription factor signaling. The mutant protein, LRbS1138, is expressed normally on the cell surface and mediates other leptin signals normally, but fails to activate STAT3. Similar to homozygous db/db mice (which are devoid of all leptin signaling), homozygous s/s mice display hyperphagia, decreased energy expenditure, and decreased thyroid function resulting in profound obesity and dramatically increased serum leptin levels compared to wild-type. Unlike db/db mice, however, s/s mice are fertile and long bodied, have improved glucose tolerance (less hyperglycemic), are not protected from intimal hyperplasia following vessel injury, and do not exhibit elevated hypothalamic expression of neuropeptide Y (NPY). Homozygous LeprS1138 mutant mice may be useful for studying LRb-STAT3 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 1138 of the leptin receptor long form (LRb)-specific exon 18b of the targeted gene with a serine residue (and also insert 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/6 (Taconic) mice to generate LRbS1138 mutant mice. These mice were then backcrossed at least 15 generations to C57BL/6 (Taconic) 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.

Molecular Note Tyrosine 1138 of exon 18b was replaced with a serine residue (Y1138S) and a neomycin resistance cassette was inserted into the downstream intron via homologous recombination. The Y1138S amino acid substitution specifically disrupts the leptin receptor long form (LRb)-STAT3 signal. Expression of the knock-in allele in mutant animals was confirmed by semi-quantitative RT-PCR analysis of hypothalamus RNA. [MGI Ref ID J:82334]

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.
