BALB/c Nude Mouse Details
Developed through crosses and back-crosses between BALB/cABom-nu and BALB/cAnNCrj-nu at Charles River Laboratories Japan (CRLJ). Pedigreed pregnant females of CAnN.Cg-Foxn1nu/Crl were received from CRLJ in 1985. This mouse is inbred, and genetic monitoring results confirm it to be a BALB/c nude. The animal lacks a thymus, is unable to produce T-cells, and is therefore immunodeficient.
