This immunodeficient nude mouse originated from NIH and was originally thought to be a BALB/c congenic. It was later determined that it was not inbred and is therefore maintained as an outbred. It is not associated with any stock or strain. The animal lacks a thymus, is unable to produce T cells, and is therefore immunodeficient. To Charles River from NCI in 2010.
