IL-1 receptor KO mice exhibit altered innate immune and inflammatory responses and show multiple effects on physiological systems and behavior.
Dr. Jacques Peschon, Amgen
Interleukin 1 receptor, type I, is a receptor for interleukin 1 (IL1), which affects many cytokine induced immune and inflammatory responses. Mice homozygous for the Il1rtm1Imx targeted mutation therefore fail to respond to IL1 and exhibit an altered immune response to many different target proteins. Some effects seen from knocking out this receptor include defective responses to certain inflammatory agents such as turpentine and altered response to various pathogenic organisms such as S. aureus and C. pneumoniae.
Other observed effects include enhanced glucose homeostasis, enhanced insulin sensitivity of adipose tissue, reduction in diet-induced systemic atherosclerosis, improved restoration of normal skin architecture in wounds, increased incidence of acute convulsive seizures induced by pentylenetetrazole, and a decrease in anxiety-related behaviors.
A null mutation in Il1r1 was generated by homologous recombination in 129/SvEv AB1 ES cells using a replacement vector in which a 2.4 kb EcoR1-Pst1 fragment encompassing two exons was replaced with a PGKneo cassette. Targeted mutant mice were backcrossed 5 times to C57BL/6 prior to importation (see SNP note below).
A 48 SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) panel analysis, with 43 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. One the 43 markers on Chromosome 8 was segregating with 129. Also, 2 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.

This strain may be maintained by homozygous sibling matings. Expected coat color from breeding is black.
When using the Il1r1- mouse strain in a publication, please cite the originating article(s) and include JAX stock #003245 in your Materials and Methods section.

We will fulfill your order by providing at least two carriers for each strain ordered. The total number, sex, and genotypes provided will vary, although typically 8 or more animals are provided. Please check genotypes which will be recovered. While the genotypes of all animals produced will be communicated to you prior to scheduling shipment, the genotypes of animals provided may not reflect the mating scheme and genotypes described in the strain description. Animals are typically ready to ship in 11-14 weeks. If a second recovery is required to produce the minimum number of animals, then delivery time would increase to approximately 25 weeks. If we fail to produce animals of the correct genotype, you will not be charged. We cannot guarantee the reproductive success of mice shipped to your facility. If the mice are lost after the first three days (post-arrival) or do not produce progeny at your facility, a new order and fee will be necessary.
Cryorecovery to establish a Dedicated Supply for greater quantities of mice. Mice recovered can be used to establish a dedicated colony to contractually supply you mice according to your requirements. Price by quotation.
