Nomenclature: CByJ.Cg-Foxn1nu/J

Type: Immunodeficient, Inbred

Origin: This mutation occurred in 1962 in a colony of albino outbred mice maintained at the Ruchill Hospital in Glasgow. The strain BALB/cByJ-nude was created by repeated backcrosses to move the nude gene onto the BALB/cByJ background.

These mice carry a spontaneous mutation at the Foxn1 locus characterized by abnormal hair growth and defective development of the thymic epithelium.

See Charles River webpage with resources about immunodeficient models: Immunodeficient Mice and Rats

Coat color: Homozygotes: hairless, unpigmented; Heterozygotes: haired, albino

Strain code: 633 (Homozygotes), 657 (Heterozygotes)

Ideal for: Tumor biology and xenograft research

JAX™ Stock No: 000711
