Nomenclature: Crl:CD1-Foxn1nu

Type: Outbred, Immunodeficient

Origin: Developed from the transfer of the nude gene from Crl:NU-Foxn1nu to a CD-1® mouse through a series of crosses and backcrosses beginning in 1979 at Charles River Laboratories, Wilmington, MA. The animal lacks a thymus, is unable to produce T-cells, and is therefore immunodeficient.

The control model for the CD-1® Nude mouse is the CD-1® Heterozygous mouse.
