Strain Name:



Cryopreserved - Ready for recovery     Available at the JAX MMRRC

Common Names: DEREG;    
Please refer to the Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Center (MMRRC) for information about C.B6-Tg(Foxp3-DTR/EGFP)23.2Spar/Mmjax MMRRC Stock Number 032049.
These "depletion of regulatory T cell" (DEREG) BAC transgenic mice express a simian diphtheria toxin receptor-enhanced green fluorescent protein (DTR-eGFP) fusion protein under control of the endogenous forkhead box P3 promoter/enhancer regions on the BAC transgene. DTR-eGFP expression is observed in fully functional Foxp3+CD4+ regulatory T cell populations allowing fluorescent detection or diphtheria toxin-induced ablation Foxp3+ T reg cells.


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.

Generation Definitions
Donating Investigator Tim Sparwasser,   Twincore Institut für Infektionsimmunol

Mice hemizygous for the "depletion of regulatory T cell" (DEREG) BAC transgene are viable and fertile, with expression of a simian diphtheria toxin receptor-enhanced green fluorescent protein (DTR-eGFP) fusion protein under control of the endogenous Foxp3 (forkhead box P3) promoter/enhancer regions on the BAC transgene. The donating investigator reports that transcription/translation from the BAC Foxp3 locus is disabled. These DEREG mice have DTR-eGFP expression in fully functional Foxp3+CD4+ regulatory T cell populations with no observed influence on regulation of the endogenous Foxp3 locus. Specifically, EGFP expression (via FACS) is observed mainly in CD25+CD4+ T cells, and allows specific detection of Foxp3+ regulatory T cell populations. The donating investigator also reports that EGFP expression is measurable by direct fluorescence. Diphtheria toxin (DT) administration results in ablation of Foxp3+CD4+ T reg cells with no apparent affect on CD25+ effector T cells. DT-induced depletion of Foxp3+CD4+ T reg cells is associated with enhanced and prolonged delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) responses and neonatal development of scurfy-like symptoms. The donating investigator reports that while homozygous females breed fine, homozygous males seem infertile.

In an attempt to offer alleles on well-characterized or multiple genetic backgrounds, alleles are frequently moved to a genetic background different from that on which an allele was first characterized. It should be noted that the phenotype could vary from that originally described. We will modify the strain description if necessary as published results become available.

The RP23-267C15 bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) containing at least ten mouse genes was obtained. This BAC was modified by targeting a simian diphtheria toxin receptor-enhanced green fluorescent protein (DTR-eGFP) fusion protein and an SV40 polyA element into the first exon of the Foxp3 (forkhead box P3) locus: none of the other loci on the BAC were mutated. This modified ~150 kb BAC transgene was microinjected into the pronuclei of fertilized C57BL/6NCrl oocytes. Transgenic mice were identified and bred to C57BL/6J wildtype mice to establish the high transgene expressing founder line 23.2. These "depletion of regulatory T cell" (DEREG) mice were maintained on a C57BL/6J genetic background. Next, transgenic mice were backcrossed to BALB/cJ wildtype mice for 10 generations (five "speed-congenic" backcrosses and then five "conventional" backcrosses). After this, transgenic mice were backcrossed 2-3 generations to BALB/cByJ wildtype mice prior to arrival at The Jackson Laboratory. Upon arrival, mice were bred to BALB/cByJ inbred mice for at least one generation to establish the colony.

Gene & Allele Information provided by MGI

Allele Symbol Tg(Foxp3-DTR/EGFP)23.2Spar
Allele Name transgene insertion 23.2, Tim Sparwasser
Allele Type Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Common Name(s) DEREG; Tg(Foxp3-DTR/EGFP)1Ebe;
Mutation Made By Tim Sparwasser,   Twincore Inst. for Infection Immunology
Strain of OriginC57BL/6NCrl
Site of ExpressionSelective DTR-eGFP expression is seen within the CD4+ T cell compartment, and highest expression within the CD25+ subset.
Expressed Gene DTR, Simian Diphtheria Toxin Receptor,
Expressed Gene GFP, Green Fluorescent Protein, jellyfish
Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP), derived from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria, is a versatile reporter molecule which has found use in many biological applications. In some constructs the original molecule has been modified in order to enhance its fluorescence intensity (EGFP, enhanced GFP). When utilized in a transgenic construct, tissue expressing sufficient amounts of GFP will fluoresce when exposed to a 488 nm light source.
Promoter Foxp3, forkhead box P3, mouse, laboratory
Molecular Note The RP23-267C15 bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) containing at least ten mouse genes was obtained. This BAC was modified by targeting a simian diphtheria toxin receptor-enhanced green fluorescent protein (DTR-eGFP) fusion protein and an SV40 polyA element into the first exon of the Foxp3 (forkhead box P3) locus: none of the other loci on the BAC were mutated. Two high expressing lines (16.1 and 23.2) were established. Analysis revealed selective DTR-eGFP expressionwithin the CD4+ T cell compartment, with the highest expression within the CD25+ subset.

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, hemizygous mice may be bred to wildtype (noncarrier) siblings or to BALB/cByJ inbred mice (Stock No. 001026). The donating investigator reports that while homozygous females breed fine, homozygous males seem infertile.

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.
