BRC No.RBRC02298
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC.Cg-Il3<tm1Glli>
Former Common nameIL-3 knock-out mouse
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineD3 [129S2/SvPas]
Background strainBALB/cAnNTac
Appearancealbino [A/A b/b c/c]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Glenn Dranoff, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School in 1998. Mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6 for 9 gnerations, and then to BALB/cAnNTac for 3 generations. Deposited by Dr. Shigeo Koyasu, Keio University School of Medicine.
Strain descriptionInterluekin-3 is a growth factor of hematopoieic progenitors that yields multipotential blast cells, mast cells, basophils,neutrophils, macrophages, eosinophils, erythrocytes, megakaryocytes, and dendritic cells. IL-3 null mutant mice show unimpaired hematopoiesis, but contact hypersensitivity reactions are compromised.
Colony maintenanceBackcross to BALB/c (Heterozygote x BALB/cAnNTac)
