Magel2-null mice harbor a maternally-inherited imprinted/silenced wildtype allele and a paternally-inherited Magel2-lacZ knock-in allele that also abolishes endogenous Magel2 (melanoma antigen, family L, 2) gene function. Magel2-null mice on this C57BL/6J genetic background recapitulate some aspects of Prader-Willi syndrome, and may be useful in studying disorders of the suprachiasmatic nuclei, circadian rhythms, obesity, and growth and feeding regulation.

Description
The mouse locus 7qB4/B5 (syntenic with the Prader-Willi region at chromosome position 15q11-q13 in humans) encompasses the cluster of paternally-expressed imprinted genes Magel2, Ndn, Mkrn3, and Peg12. As maternal imprinting silences the Magel2 allele, only the paternally inherited Magel2 allele is expressed. The Magel2-lacZ knock-in allele abolishes endogenous gene function and expresses a β-galactosidase fusion protein. Under control of the upstream promoter/enhancer elements, lacZ expression is directed to the same tissues as the wildtype gene. For example, β-galactosidase expression during embryogenesis is detected in central nervous system (neural tube, forebrain, midbrain and embryonic hypothalamus), peripheral nervous system (dorsal root ganglia and peripheral neurons innervating limb and trunk muscles), and some non-neuronal tissues (genital tubercle, midgut region and placenta). Adult β-galactosidase expression in the brain is most prominent in the magnocellular system (composed of suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN), paraventricular nuclei (PVN) and supraoptic nuclei (SON)) of the hypothalamus. The donating investigator breeds heterozygous females with wildtype males (or C57BL/6J inbred males) to maintain the line; as the resulting offspring will have no abnormal phenotype. To obtain "Magel2-null" offspring (both maternal and paternal Magel2 alleles are non-functional), wildtype females are bred with heterozygous males; allowing maternal transmission of the imprinted/silenced wildtype allele and paternal transmission of the Magel2-lacZ (null) allele. Magel2-null mice have disrupted circadian rhythm and metabolism associated with reductions in embryonic/perinatal survival, total activity, food consumption, weight before weaning, and fertility in both sexes, as well as increased adiposity after weaning and altered reproductive behavior. Magel2-null mice on this C57BL/6J genetic background recapitulate some aspects of Prader-Willi syndrome, and may be useful in studying disorders of the suprachiasmatic nuclei, circadian rhythms, obesity, and growth and feeding regulation.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to replace the open reading frame of the Magel2 (melanoma antigen, family L, 2) locus with a β-galactosidase (lacZ) expression cassette and loxP-flanked neo cassette. The construct was electroporated into C57BL/6-derived Bruce4 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into recipient blastocysts and chimeric mice were bred with C57BL/6J mice to establish the colony. Mice were then backcrossed to C57BL/6J for approximately 10 generations prior to arrival at The Jackson Laboratory. Upon arrival, mice were bred to C57BL/6J (Stock No. 000664) for at least one generation to establish the colony.

Gene & Allele Information provided by MGI

 
Allele Symbol Magel2tm1Stw
Allele Name targeted mutation 1, Colin L Stewart
Allele Type Targeted (Reporter)
Common Name(s) Magel2-;
Mutation Made By Rachel Wevrick,   University of Alberta
Strain of OriginB6.Cg-Thy1
ES Cell Line NameBruce 4
ES Cell Line StrainB6.Cg-Thy1
Site of ExpressionlacZ is expressed during embryogenesis in the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, and some non-neuronal tissues including the genital tubercle, midgut region and placenta. Adult lacZ expression in the brain is most prominent in the magnocellular system, paraventricular nuclei (PVN) and supraoptic nuclei (SON)) of the hypothalamus.
Expressed Gene lacZ, beta-galactosidase, E. coli
Molecular Note The entire open reading frame was replaced with a lacZ-neo cassette. The endogenous promoter drives the expression of lacZ as confirmed by a beta-galactosidase assay. The absence of the paternal transcript was confirmed by RT-PCR. [MGI Ref ID J:125637]

Colony Maintenance

Breeding & HusbandryMaternal imprinting silences the Magel2 gene. Breeding heterozygous females with wildtype males (or C57BL/6J inbred males) results in offspring with no abnormal phenotype; this is desirable for routine colony maintenance. To obtain "Magel2-null" offspring (both maternal and paternal Magel2 alleles are non-functional), wildtype females are bred with heterozygous males; allowing maternal transmission of the imprinted/silenced wildtype allele and paternal transmission of the Magel2-lacZ (null) allele. Magel2-null mice have reduced embryonic/perinatal survival and diminished fertility in both sexes.

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.
