Former Common name C57BL/6-PD-1KO, C57BL/6-Pdcd1-/- mouse  
H-2 Haplotype No Data  
ES cell line D3 [129S2/SvPas]  
Background strain C57BL/6  
 1 Appearance black  
Genotype (a/a B/B C/C)  
Strain development Developed by Tasuku Honjo, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University in 1998. The knockout construct was electoroporated into D3 ES cells derived from 129S2/SvPas. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6 over 11 generations.  
Strain description PD1 knockout mice. EcoRV site of exon 3 to PvuII site of exon 5 was replaced with noemycin selection cassette. PD1 (Pdcd1, programmed cell death 1) gene is an immunoinhibitory receptor that belongs to the CD28 family, plays a role in the negative control of proliferation, differentiation and class switching of B cells. PD1 deficiency has been shown to develop different forms of autoimmune diseases on different backgrounds of mice. Homozygous PD1 mutant mice of C57BL/6 background show moderate but consistent splenomegaly, and spontaneously develop characteristic lupus-like proliferative arthritis and golmerulonephritis with the age.  
Colony maintenance Homozygote x Homozygote.
