Gene Affected Prkdc: protein kinase, DNA activated, catalytic polypeptide, Il2rg: interleukin 2 receptor-gamma
Origin This strain was established by Zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs) method taregting rat Prkdc gene and Il2rg gene. Background strain: F344/Stm
Strain characteristics This strain shows severe combined immunodeficiency(SCID)and growth retardation caused by a 227-bp deletion in the exon 1 of Prkdc gene and a 332-bp deletion in Il2rg gene.
Breeding Conditions maintaied by mating between Il2rg-homozygous/Prkdc-heterozygous rats
Genotyping Prkdc、wild:1321-bp、mutant:989-bp (primers: CAGCAGCTTCTGACCAATCA and GAAAGGGAGATGAGGGAAGG) Il2rg、wild:1509-bp、mutant:1177-bp (primers: TCTCCCAGGGGACTTAGCTTA and TGGGACCTGGTGTTAGGTTT)
