A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The nonobese diabetic (NOD) mouse is a widely used model for genetic studies of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus due to the similarities between the murine and human diseases. To aid in the localization and identification of diabetes-related susceptibility genes, we have constructed an interspecific backcross between NOD and Mus spretus (SEG/Pas) mice. Although no diabetic animals were observed in the first backcross generation of (SEG/Pas x NOD) x NOD (BC1), the incidence of insulitis (lymphocyte infiltration of the islets of Langerhans) exceeded 20% after injections of cyclophosphamide, a treatment that provokes an acute form of diabetes in NOD mice. Insulitis, a prediabetic condition, is a useful phenotype in studies of diabetes susceptibility. In the second backcross (BC2) generation, 8% of the animals became diabetic and 76% were found to have insulitis. Genetic mapping studies in the BC2 families confirmed the importance of the major histocompatibility complex region on the severity of insulitis and suggested that additional susceptibility loci were linked to markers on mouse chromosomes 3, 6, and 15. Mus spretus crosses have been an important tool in recent advances in murine genetics, and our results extend their usefulness to the study of a multifactorial disease.
