Gene Summary

Model Description

This strain carries a Foxn1nu mutation on the BALB/c background which will lead to T cell deletion. At the same time, the response to thymus-dependent antigens is limited, resulting in impaired B cell function while NK cells, macrophages, and antigen-presenting cells function normally. The complement activity is normal as well. Hair dysplasia causes aberrant hair growth in which the majority of the hair cannot protrude from the surface, resulting in a naked mouse phenotype.
