Strain nameB6.Cg-Uchl1<gad>/Wada
Former Common namegad mice
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Strain developmentDeveloped by Keiji Wada, National Institute of Neuroscience, NCNP.
Strain descriptionSpontaneous neurological mutant found in the F2 offspring of CBA/Nga and RFM/Nga mice. Mutation was found in the gene, Uchl1 (ubiquitin carboxy-terminal hydrolase L1). C57BL/6J congenic strain by backcrossing over 35 generations. Homozygous mutants exhibit axonal dystrophy and degeneration in the gracile nucleus of the medulla around 2 months old and die around 6 months to 1 year old. Homozygous mutants are difficult to breed.
