Gene Affected interleukin 2 receptor gamma (Il2rg), recombination activating 2(Rag2)
Origin 【This strain is provided by the University of Tokyo (cooperative facility)】This strain was established by targeting Il2rg gene and Rag2 gene in F344/Jcl using CRISPR/Cas9 system. gRNA seq to Il2rg: CCAACCTCACTATGCACTATAGG (PAM: first CCA); gRNA to Rag2: AACATAGCCTTAATTCAACCAGG (PAM: last AGG); Cas 9 mRNA transcribed from T7-NLS hCas9-pA (RDB13130) was used for the system. Gene transfer was performed by electroporation. The off-target sites have not been identified yet.
Strain characteristics This strain shows severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) caused by 5-bp deletion in Il2rg gene on X chromosome and 1-bp insertion in Rag2 gene on chromosome 3. This strain grows normally under SPF condition. The sexual maturation is a bit late.
Breeding Conditions Mating male hemizygous and female homozygous.
Genotyping Transgenic rats can be distinguished by PCR, electrophoresis and Sanger sequencing. Il2rg: Wiled type: 292 bp, Mutant: 287 bp, Primer:TTGCTGACTTCTATGGACCTTAAA, TTCATCTGGTCTGAACTGATAACTTAT, Rag2: Wilde type: 381bp, Mutant: 382bp, Primer:GGGGAGAAGGTGTCTTACGG, AGGTGGGAGGTAGCAGGAAT
