Strain development Developed by Chang-Woo Song and Jae-Woo Cho, Korea Institute of Toxicology in Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology. Mutant mice were crossed to BALB/c.
Strain description Homozygous mutant mice resemble hairless rhino mice in which no hair regeneration occurs and skin tissue is extensively folded. A mutation in the human homolog of Hr (HR; OMIM602302) , are known to cause congenital hairless disease, alopecia universalis congenita (OMIM602302). The Depositors are welcome to collaborate further detailed analyses on this mutant mouse. Series of other ENU-mutant mice with interesting phenotypes have also been deposited to RIKEN BRC.
Colony maintenance Heterozygote (male) x Homozygote (female) Homozygous mutant females have nurturing young, possibly as a result of defects in lactation.
