Strain development Originated from RIKEN ENU-base gene-driven mutagenesis. Established the B6 congenic strains by Tatiana Lipina and John Roder, Mount Sinai Hospital. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6 over 15 times (C57BL/6J and C57BL/6NCrl mixed).
Strain description DISC1 has been reported as a responsible gene for mental illness which was originally found in a large Scottish family with major mental illness such as depression and schizophrenia. Two independently derived ENU-induced mutant mice which have missense mutations in exon 2 of Disc1 gene were developed and analyzed jointly by RIKEN (Japan), University of Edinburgh (UK), and Mount Sinai Hospital (Canada). The mutant mouse with Q31L (Disc1<Rgsc1393>) showed depressive-like behavior with defects, e.g., in the forced swim test. The other mutant mouse with L100P (Disc1<Rgsc1390>) exhibited schizophrenic-like behavior, with profound defect in prepulse inhibition and latent inhibition. These Disc1 missense mutant mice are expected to be very useful as models for depression and schizophrenia. Disc1<Rgsc1390> (L100P)(RBRC06364), Disc1<Rgsc1393> (Q31L)(RBRC06365).
