1 Appearance black
Genotype (a/a B/B C/C)
Strain development Discovered in a C57BL/6 breeding colony. Developed by Dr. Yoshibumi Matsushima, Saitama Cancer Center in 2005.
Strain description The spontaneous mutation that was discovered in a C57BL/6 breeding colony. Homozygous mutant mice exhibit the incoordinated limbs and lean body in the lower half of the body, and die from 4 to 5 weeks after birth. In these mice, a neurodystrophic change appearing as spheroid bodies in central and peripheral nervous system is observed. This strain is useful as a mouse model for infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy (INAD).
Colony maintenance Sibling Mating (Heterozygote x Heterozygote) or Transplant-Cross-Intercross (maintenace by ovary transplantation, Homozygote x Heterozygote)
Homozygous mutant mice die before sexual maturity.
