Allele Symbol Klra8Cmv1-r
MGI Allele Accession ID MGI:2387148
1.  Affected Congenic Gene Name: histocompatibility-2, MHC  
Mutant Construction Technique None
Phenotype Homozygous State The Klra8 gene from C57BL/6 has been recombined into the genome of Balb/c mice. The H2b locus of C57BL/6 has also been recombined into this BALB/c. Mice expressing Klra8 are resistant to CMV infection compared to BALB/c H2k2 and BALB/c H2b controls.
