Phenotypic Description

No visible phenotype is associated with this mutation but the mice do exhibit reduced lung airway remodelling & deficient B-cell, T-cell & dendritic cell function. This mutation is on a C57BL/6<c-/c-> background and is albino in appearance. The BIC mice (EMMA ID EM:02231) have been backcrossed at least 5 times to C57BL/6, thus making them suitable for bone marrow transplantation, without rejection, to any C57BL/6 mice, regardless of coat color.
