These mice have a targeted mutation of the Nocturnin (Ccrn4l; CCR4 carbon catabolite repression 4-like (S. cerevisiae)) gene and may be useful in studying resistance to diet-induced obesity, physiologic rhythms downstream of the circadian clockwork, and post-transcriptional regulation of genes necessary for nutrient uptake, metabolism, and storage.

Description

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.

Description
Mice homozygous for this Nocturnin (Ccrn4l or Noc) targeted mutation are viable and fertile, with no detectable Noc protein made from the targeted gene. Homozygotes are resistant to diet-induced obesity and remain lean on high-fat diets, with lower body weight and reduced visceral fat. Unlike lean lipodystrophic mouse models, Noc-deficient mice do not have fatty livers (hepatic steatosis) and do not exhibit increased activity or reduced food intake. In addition to changes in glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, homozygous mice may also have deficits in lipid metabolism or lipid uptake. Nocturnin-deficient mice may be useful in studying resistance to diet-induced obesity, physiologic rhythms downstream of the circadian clockwork, and post-transcriptional regulation of genes necessary for nutrient uptake, metabolism, and storage.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to replace introns 2-3 and the coding region of exon 3 (which contains most of the protein coding sequence including the catalytic domain) of the targeted gene with a neomycin resistance cassette. The construct was electroporated into 129S2/SvPas-derived D3 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into recipient blastocysts. The resulting chimeric males were bred with C57BL/6J females. Next, mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J inbred mice for at least 10 generations prior to arrival at The Jackson Laboratory. Upon arrival, mutant mice were bred with C57BL/6J inbred mice (Stock No. 000664) for at least one generation to establish the colony.

  • increased insulin sensitivity
    • when fed a standard diet, mice have increased insulin sensitivity   (MGI Ref ID J:122301)
    • however, insulin sensitivity after being fed a high fat diet is comparable to that in wild-type   (MGI Ref ID J:122301)

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.
