NU/NU Nude Mouse Details
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 and is not associated with any stock or strain. The animal lacks a thymus, is unable to produce T-cells, and is, therefore, immunodeficient.
Note: See our isolator page for available immunocompromised animal housing units.
