Origin: The CIEA NOG mouse® was developed by Mamoru Ito of the Central Institute for Experimental Animals (CIEA) in Japan. The Prkdc scid mutation was identified by Mel Bosma of the Fox Chase Cancer Center in a C.B-17 congenic mouse population. This mutation was backcrossed onto the NOD/ShiJic strain at CIEA for at least eight generations. The Il2rg targeted mutation was developed by Dr. Kazuo Sugamura of Tohoku University by targeting the gene in ES cells derived from a 129 strain. Portions of exons 7 and 8 were replaced with a neo cassette. Targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. Resultant chimeras were backcrossed onto the C57BL/6JJic background for at least eight generations. The CIEA NOG mouse® was developed by backcrossing the C57BL/6JJic-Il2rg line to the NOD/ShiJic-Prkdc scid line for a total of eight generations. The linearized hIL-6 transgene was injected into zygotes from NOD/Shi-IL2rg females x NOD/Shi-IL2rg males. The transgenic hIL6- NOD/Shi-IL2rg mouse was crossed on to the NOG background to introduce the Prkdc scid mutation. The mice were backcrossed onto the NOG background three times. Taconic received stock in 2014, and the line was derived through embryo transfer.
