Genotype c/c  
Strain development Spontaneous mutation arose in the ddY closed colony. Developed by Dr. Ryuichi Konno, Dokkyo University.  
Strain description This mutant mice have a missense mutation (Gly181Arg) in DAO gene. The mice with this mutant allele lack the D-amino acid oxidase activity. The levels of D-serine in the cerebellum and rostral brain of mutant mice are higher than those of normal (Dao1+/+) mice. The mutant mice display a decrease of stereotypy and ataxia induced by NMDA receptor antagonists. This strain is useful for study of schizophrenia.  
Colony maintenance Sibling Mating (Homozygote x Homozygote)
Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile.
