Strain description

NDRG1 KO mice are knockout mice of NDRG1, an ER stress response gene, and model mice of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4D which is a hereditary neurodegenerative disease in peripheral nerves.

This strain is observed movement disorder in hind limbs after about 3 months old, and neurodegeneration with demyelination in the histopathological analysis of sciatic nerves. It's considered that NDRG1 KO mice decrease motor function to demyelinate by decreasing function of Schwann cell because NDRG1 protein highly express in Schwann cells. Incidentally, this strain is possible to breed but low reproductive efficiency, and low birth rate of homo mice.
