  1. Resource Description
    Development: B6.H2g7 is a congenic line developed by H Kikutani. This strain carries the NOD-derived MHC class II g7, haplotype, Iocated on Chromosome 17, but has all other genes from the B6 strain. The line is currently at the >20th generation. B6-H2g7 mice are viable, fertile, and present with no particular phenotype. They show no insulitis or diabetes (Luhder F et al, Mathis D, 2000). When crossed with BDC2.5 transgenic line, BDC2.5/B6g7 mice develop typical diabetes in most features, but, in contrast to the disease in BDC2.5/N or regular NOD animals, there is a quick transition from initial islet infiltration to massive destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells (Gonzalez A et al, Mathis D, 1997).
