Mutant Construction Technique None
Phenotype Homozygous State Fewer CD4 T cells in peripheral blood or in thymus. Decreased cell surface expression of MHC II and CD86 on dendritic cells and B cells. Antinuclear autoantibodies (homogeneous nuclear) although this was incompletely penetrant on B6 background and absent on CBAxB6 background and may or may not be linked to CD4 cell deficiency.
Original Genetic Background CBA/CaJAnu
Genetic Background Currently Maintained C57BL/6JAnu
