Mhc congenic mouse strains l.jpg
MHC Congenic Mouse Strains

1948- George Snell (The Jackson Laboratory)

  • Using skin transplantation he examined what he termed “histocompatibility genes” = H genes

  • The H gene for antigen II was designated H2, later changed to H-2

  • He realized that the first step in the genetic analysis of histocompatibility was the separation and identification of individual genes.

  • He therefore generated congenic mouse stains

    Identified 2 types of loci:

    Major (strong) = H-2

    Minor (weak) = non-H2

    i.e. H-1, H-4, H-Y

  • Nomenclature- STRAIN.LOCUS (i.e. B10.H-2a or B10.A)


Generation of congenic mouse strains l.jpg
Generation of congenic mouse strains

“Speed congenics” decrease the number of

backcross generations by typing each chromosome for background strain alleles and selecting mice to breed which have the highest number of background genes.

Ir genes l.jpg
Ir Genes and Unanue, E.R.

  • How to explain lack of a response

    • Hole in the repertoire

      • T cells do not exist that are able to respond, involving thymic selection

    • Determinant Selection

      • MHC molecules select which determinants they can present
