Description
Phospholipase C, beta 3, is critical to G protein-coupled receptor signal transduction pathways regulating mast cell activation and cell migration, as well as intracellular calcium ion release. These mice carry a targeted mutation in which a NEO selection cassette replaced exon 1, encoding the X box of the catalytic domain. Mice that are homozygous for the targeted mutation are viable and fertile. No gene product (mRNA or protein) is detected by Western blot analysis of dorsal root ganglion neurons and neutrophils. Homozygotes exhibit a 5-fold increased sensitivity to morphine, and increased sensitivity to a mu opioid agonist. In reponse to somatostatin, there is no influx of calcium into in aortic smooth muscle cells of homozygotes. Homozygotes 6 months or older sometimes develop skin ulcers around the head area, with infiltration of leukocytes in to the lesions. Histamine, selective H1 histamine receptor agonist, and mast cell activator challenges do not elicit scratching behavior in null mice. Dorsal root ganglion neurons isolated from homozygotes exhibit a decreased calcium response to histamine. Complement 5a induced calcium ion efflux in peritoneal macrophages from homozygotes is decreased when compared to the response in control animals. After thioglycollate treatment, homozygotes exhibit an increase in macrophage apoptosis, resulting in fewer peritoneal macrophages. Macrophages from null mice are hypersensitive to apoptosis inducers such as oxysterol and LPS/cycloheximide. Chemotactic response to antigen of IgE-sensitized bone marrow cells (isolated from homozygotes) is reduced. Bone marrow cells from homozygotes produce less IL-6, TNF-alpha, and IL-13, and exhibit increased Lyn kinase activity.

Development
A targeting vector containing NEO cassette was used to disrupt part of the exon encoding the X box of the catalytic domain. The construct was electroporated into unspecified embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into blastocysts. The resulting chimeric animals were crossed to C57BL/6 mice, and then backcrossed to C57BL/6 for 5 generations. Upon arrival at The Jackson Laboratory, the mice were crossed to C57BL/6J (Stock No. 000664) at least once to establish the colony.

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.
