NOD. H2-Ab1 deficient mice are diabetes resistant and exhibit a dramatic decrease of CD4+ T cells when compared to NOD/ShiLtJ. This model may be useful to facilitate the engraftment of immune cells in adoptive transfer experiments and to understand the role of MHC class II in autoimmunity.
Li Wen, Yale School of Medicine
Mice homozygous for MHC class II gene, H2-Ab1 targeted mutation, commonly referred to as NOD-Ab0, are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. NOD. Ab0 mice are diabetes resistant. MHC class II gene products (mRNA or protein) are not detected. FACS analysis of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL's) indicates a dramatic decrease is observed in the number of CD4+ T cells when compared to NOD/ShiLtJ (Stock No. 001976). In addition, FACS of PBL's verifies the MHC class I variant Kb (129S2 derived) is in linkage to the Ab0 mutation. SNP and Mit marker assisted analysis indicates the Chromosome 17 markers D17Mit27 through D17Mit176 to be of 129S2 origin and is about 29 mb long. No other non-NOD contaminating regions were identified. In 2008, the T1DR received this stock at N11F?. This strain was mated to NOD/LtJ (Stock No. 001976) once prior to breeding to homozygosity. This model may be useful to facilitate the engraftment of immune cells in adoptive transfer experiments and to understand the role of MHC class II in autoimmunity.
A construct containing a neomycin expression cassette was inserted into the second exon of H2-Ab1 gene. The construct was transfected into D3, 129S2/SvPas, embryonic stem (ES) cells, which carries a deletion in the promoter region of the H2-Ea. These ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. Progeny of chimeric mice were mated with C57BL/6. The H2-Ab1tm1Doi mutation was backcrossed for 10 generations to NOD/CaJ prior to making homozygous. In 2009, SNP and Mit marker testing performed by the T1DR indicate that there is no contaminating genome outside of the congenic region on Chr. 17.

|Strain of Origin||129S2/SvPas|
|Molecular Note||The second exon was disrupted by the insertion of a neomycin resistance gene. In addition, the ES cell line used was derived from the 129S2/SvPas strain, which carries a deletion in the promoter region of H2-Ea. Consequently, these MHC class II molecule-deficient mice lacked cell surface expression of both class II-A and class II-E MHC proteins.|

This strain is maintained homozygous x homozygous.
These mice are immunodeficient and need to be maintained in a high barrier environment with sterile food and water or given antibiotic (Sulfatrim) in the water.
|Please inquire about possible genotypes.|
The average number of mice provided from recovery of our cryopreserved strains is 10. The total number of animals provided,
their gender and genotype will vary. We will fulfill your order by providing at least two pair of mice, at least one animal of
each pair carrying the mutation of interest. Please inquire if larger numbers of animals with specific genotype and genders
are needed. Animals typically ship between 10 and 14 weeks from the date of your order. If a second cryorecovery is needed in
order to provide the minimum number of animals, animals will ship within 25 weeks.
The genotypes of animals provided may not reflect the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation, or that discussed in the strain description. Please inquire about possible genotypes which will be recovered for this specific strain. The Jackson Laboratory 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.
