Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC01059
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameNC
Former Common name
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Appearanceagouti brown [A/A b/b C/C D/D S/S]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Kyoji Kondo at Nagoya University, School of Agriculture. Derived from a cinnamon coat color colony of Japanese fancy mice (Nishiki-Nezumi).
Strain descriptionNC/Nga mice were originated from Japanese fancy mice (Nishiki-Nezumi) and were established as a inbred strain in 1955. NC/Nga mice develop skin lesions similar to atopic dermatitis when kept under conventional environment, but not under specific pathogen -free environment as specific pathogen-free animals. They also show a high susceptibility to X-irradiation and anaphylactic shock from ovalbumin. Developed by Dr. Kyoji Kondo at Nagoya University.
