ExternallySourcedDefinition Type: Inbred Strain TJL Mating System: Sib Type: Inbred Strain TJL Mating System: Sibling x Sibling (Female x Male) Species: laboratory mouse H2 Haplotype: q Generation: F84 (16-NOV-05) Appearance: dilute brown Related Genotype: a/a Tyrp1b/Tyrp1b Myo5ad/Myo5ad Important Note This strain is homozygous for Cdh23ahl, the age related hearing loss 1 mutation, which on this background results in progressive hearing loss with onset after 10 months of age. Strain Description Historical reports indicate DBA/1J and DBA/1LacJ mice immunized with type II collagen develop a severe polyarthritis mediated by an autoimmune response. There is some suggestion that response to collagen induction in the DBA/1LacJ strain is not as robust as indicated by earlier studies. Arthritis models such as B10.RIII-H2r H2-T18b/(71NS)SnJ (Stock number 000457) and BUB/BnJ (Stock number 000653) can be used as alternatives to DBA/1LacJ. Similar to the human condition, mice with collagen-induced arthritis display synovitis and erosions of cartilage and bone. In addition, susceptibility in both humans and mice is linked to the expression of specific MHC class II molecules. DBA/1 mice show a low susceptibility to developing atherosclerotic aortic lesions (20 to 350 um2 atherosclerotic aortic lesions/aortic cross-section) following 14 weeks on an atherogenic diet (1.25% cholesterol, 0.5% cholic acid and 15% fat). Strain Development The DBA inbred strain is the oldest of all inbred strains of mice. Dr. CC Little began inbreeding in 1909 from a mouse colony segregating for coat color. During 1929 and 1930 crosses were made among substrains and several new substrains established including DBA/1 and DBA/2. DBA/1 and DBA/2 differ at a large number of loci (including the MHC H2 haplotype) which is most likely due to residual heterozygosity at the separation. residual heterozygosity at the separation.
