Appearancealbino [c/c]
Strain developmentSpontaneous mutation arose in the ddY closed colony. Developed by Dr. Ryuichi Konno, Dokkyo University.
Strain descriptionThis mutant mice have a missense mutation (Gly181Arg) in DAO gene. The mice with this mutant allele lack the D-amino acid oxidase activity. The levels of D-serine in the cerebellum and rostral brain of mutant mice are higher than those of normal (Dao1+/+) mice. The mutant mice display a decrease of stereotypy and ataxia induced by NMDA receptor antagonists. This strain is useful for study of schizophrenia.
Colony maintenanceSibling Mating (Homozygote x Homozygote)Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile.
