Strain developmentThis substrain of reeler mice were developed by Ogawa M (Neuron14, 1995) by extensive selection ofhomozygous breeders from original mutant mice. The strain has been maintained by sister brother mating for more than15 generations in RIKEN Tsukuba Institute.
Strain descriptionThe reeler mutation was first identified by Falconer as neurological mutant mice with abnormal locomotion (J Genet 50, 192-201, 1951) . Laminar formation of cerebral and cerebellar cortex was severely impaired in homozygous mutant mice. This mutant lacks entire Relin gene associated with large deletion of about 150kb.
Colony maintenanceHeterozygous females x homozygous males, or heterozygote x heterozygote. Some homozygous females may also be used as breeders.
