These B1-8i mutant mice carry two copies of VHDHJH gene arrangements in their immunoglobulin heavy chain complex (IgH) alleles, representing a recombined antibody variable region derived from a 4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenylacetyl binding antibody (B1-8), replacing an endogenous IgH-D element (DQ52) and the IgH-J elements. This strain may be useful for studying the effect of a restricted antibody repertoire on immune responses.

Description
These B1-8i mutant mice carry two copies of VHDHJH gene arrangements in their immunoglobulin heavy chain complex (IgH) alleles, representing a recombined antibody variable region derived from a 4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenylacetyl binding antibody (B1-8), replacing an endogenous IgH-D element (DQ52) and the IgH-J elements. A silent point mutation in codon 92 inactivates the internal heptameric recombination signal sequence (RSS), abolishing endogenous VH replacement and increasing the stability of the gene segment. Mice homozygous for this allele are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. This strain may be useful for studying the effect of a restricted antibody repertoire on immune responses.

Development
The B1-8VDJ targeting vector was designed to replace endogenous sequence encompassing a 3' Igh-D element (DQ52) and the Igh-J elements of immunoglobulin heavy chain complex (IgH) with a recombined antibody variable region derived from a 4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl acetyl binding antibody (B1-8). The B1-8 variable region was modified to contain a point mutation in codon 92, inactivating an internal heptameric recombination signal sequence. A loxP-flanked neomycin resistance (neo) cassette was inserted upstream of the B1-8 region. The construct was electroporated into 129P2/OlaHsd-derived E14.1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were transiently transfected with a pIC-Cre expression plasmid to delete the floxed-neo cassette, and were injected into CB.20 (C57BL/6 congenic with BALB/c at the IgH locus) blastocysts. The donating investigator stated that the resulting chimeric mice were bred to CB.20 mice and offspring were backcrossed to CB.20 (see SNP note below) at least 10 generations to establish a colony of homozygous B1-8i mice. Upon arrival, mice were bred to C57BL/6J inbred mice (Stock No. 000664) for at least one generation to establish the colony.

A 32 SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) panel analysis, with 27 markers covering all 19 chromosomes and the X chromosome, as well as 5 markers that distinguish between the C57BL/6J and C57BL/6N substrains, was performed on the rederived living colony at The Jackson Laboratory Repository. While the 27 markers throughout the genome suggested a C57BL/6 genetic background, 4 of 5 markers that determine C57BL/6J from C57BL/6N were found to be segregating. These data suggest the mice sent to The Jackson Laboratory Repository were on a mixed C57BL/6J ; C57BL/6N genetic background.

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.
