  1. Resource Description
    Development: The surface marker NK1.1 is a receptor of the NKR-P1 family normally expressed in the C57BL/6 (B6) strain but not in the NOD strain. The NK1.1 cell surface receptor has been bred onto NOD mice, which carry a reported 10 cM of Chr. 6 from C57BL/6. A homozygous line was initiated from the progeny of the intercross. (Carnaud et al, Herbelin A, 2001). The line is currently at the >50th backcross to NOD/LtJ (2005). NK cells are B6-like and can be differentiated from NOD-like NK cells. NOD.NK1.1 mice express the NK1.1 marker selectively on the surface of their NK and NKT cell subsets. In addition, the mice may manifest slightly reduced disease incidence.
