Phenotype Homozygous State Low T cell numbers which are hyperactivated. By flow cytometric staining of blood, initially detected a strain with CD4 T cells decreased to 25% of wild-type. Further analysis revealed entirely normal thymic development and single positive cells, but a marked reduction in the number of peripheral T cells especially naïve CD4 and CD8 cells, and poor survival of thunder T cells upon adoptive transfer. During this analysis, it was found that thunder thymocytes stain with the RA3-6B2 antibody that selectively recognizes the CD45RABC B220 isoform normally restricted to B cells. Staining with antibodies to CD45RA, B or C showed a 50-fold increase in staining on all thymocytes and peripheral T cells, as well as macrophages and dendritic cells, so that the staining intensity matched that on B cells. Amplification of cDNA with primers spanning CD45 exons 4-6 showed a dramatic increase in the inclusion of these exons in thymocyte CD45 mRNA, establishing that the thunder mutation interferes with the normal CD45 exon 4-6 silencing process.
