Stock Number :

034409-MU

Gene Information

Gene Details [Including genotyping protocols]

(provided by MGI)
Allele Symbol: Gipc3ahl5-Black Swiss
Name: age related hearing loss 5-Black Swiss
Alteration at locus: Spontaneous Mutation
Gene Symbol: Gipc3
Name: GIPC PDZ domain containing family, member 3
Chromosome: 10
Alteration at locus: Spontaneous Mutation

Genetic Alterations:
BLSW/Ntra carries a spontaneous mutation initially identified as age related hearing loss 5 (ahl5), which confers hearing impairment. The mutation is located in the Gipc3 gene and is a G>A transition at nucleotide position c.343. This allele is a strain characteristic of BLSW/Ntra.

Genotype Determination:

ES Cell Line: Not Applicable

Strain Description [Including phenotype, strain background, strain development and suggested control mice]

Phenotype

Homozygous phenotype: Thr ahl5 alle is an amino acid replacement (glycine to arginine) in the PDZ domain of Gipc3. It causes progressive sensorineural hearing loss and audiogenic seizures in young adults.

Heterozygous phenotype: The strain is not available as heterozygous mutation.

Strain of Origin: Black Swiss

Strain genetic background: Black Swiss

Strain Development: Black Swiss mice were initially obtained from Taconic. By strict brother x sister matings the current F11 population was obtained.

Suggested Control Mice:

  • Wildtype littermates

Research Applications

  • Cell Biology
  • Models for Human Disease
  • Neurobiology
  • Sensorineural

Colony and Husbandry Information

Special Considerations

None.

Health Status Report

Mice recovered from a cryo-archive will have health surveillance performed on recipient females. Health reports will be provided prior to shipment. If you require additional health status information, please email mmrrc@missouri.edu.

Order Request Information

Availability Level

Limited quantities of breeder mice (recovered litter) are available from a cryoarchive; recovered litter usually available to ship in 3 to 4 months.

Conditions of Distribution [Including applicable technology transfer agreements]

Distribution of this strain requires submission of the MMRRC Conditions of Use (COU). A link to the COU web form will be provided via email after an order has been placed; the form should be completed then or the email forwarded to your institutional official for completion.

Fees

Additional charges may apply for any special requests. Shipping costs are in addition to the basic distribution/resuscitation fees. Information on shipping costs and any additional charges will be provided by the supplying MMRRC facility.

1 The distribution fee covers the expense of resuscitating mice from the cryo-archive; you will receive the resulting litter. The litter will contain at minimum one mutant carrier; the actual number of animals and the gender and genotype ratios will vary. (Typically, multiple breeder pairs can be established from the recovered litter.) Prior to shipment, the MMRRC will provide information about the animals recovered. If you anticipate or find that you need to request specific genotypes, genders or quantities of mice in excess of what is likely from a resuscitated litter, you may discuss available options and pricing with the supplying MMRRC facility.

2 An aliquot is one straw or vial with sufficient sperm to recover at least one litter of mice, as per provided protocols, when performed at the MMRRC facility. The MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning the success of these procedures when performed outside the MMRRC facilities.

3 An aliquot contains a sufficient number of embryos (in one or more vials and based on the transfer success rate of the MMRRC facility) to transfer to at least two recipients. The MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning embryo transfer success experienced in the recipient investigator's laboratory. Neither gender nor genotype ratios are guaranteed.
