Strain development Developed by Masahiko Hatano and Takeshi Tokuhisa, Graduate School of Medicine, Chiba University, and Noboru Mizushima, National Institute for Basic Biology in 2003. The knockout construct was electoroporated into R1 ES cells derived from (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl<+>. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J.  
Strain description Atg5 knockout mice. Exons 1 and 2 of Atg5 were replaced with a neomycin resistance gene. Homozygous mutant mice die during the early neonatal period due to a lack of nutrients. Autophagy is an intracellular degradation process by an autophagosome, which contains a portion of cytoplasm and subsequently degrades upon fusion with a lysosome. Autophagy is considered to be important for the cellular response to starvation and the normal turnover of cytoplasmic components as well. Atg5, autophagy-related 5 is essential for autophagosome formation. Conditional mice (floxed allele) are also available: B6.129S-Atg5<tm1Myok> (RBRC02975).
