Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC02393
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC.Cg-Aicda<tm1Hon>(N12)
Former Common nameBALB/c-Aicda<-/->(N12)mouse
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineTT2 [(C57BL/6NCrlj x CBA/JNCrlj)F1]
Background strainBALB/cCrSlc
Appearancealbino [A/A b/b c/c]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Masamichi Muramatsu at Kyoto University in 2000. A neomycin resistance cassette was transferred into TT2 ES cells to replace exon 2 and part of exon 3 of the Aicda gene. The Aid deficient mice were backcrossed to BALB/c.
Strain descriptionAid, Activation-Induced cytidine Deaminase is a molecule which specifically expressed in B lymphocytes after antigen stimulation. AID deficiency causes a complete defect in class switching and shows a hyper-IgM phenotype with enlarged germinal centers containing strongly activated B cells before or after immunization. Accumulation of IgM positive B cells is remarkable in the gut lamina propria. Furthermore, it is suggested that a mutation of the Aid gene is a cause of the hereditary immune deficiency disorder, type-2 hyper-IgM syndrome (HIGM2) in human. As well as class switch recombination, it was also found that somatic hypermutation of an immunoglobulin variable region gene and gene conversion did not occur at all in the Aid deficiency mice. Aid gene is a molecule serving as a central role in antibody gene variety acquisition mechanism of B cell.
Colony maintenanceHomozyogte x HomozygoteHomozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile.
