  1. Mus musculus


  1. Resource Description
    "Mice that are homozygous for the poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 null mutation are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. Although a shortened transcript is generated, no enzymatic activity is detected in tissues. Proliferation of homozygous fibroblasts and thymocytes is impaired following gamma-radiation in comparison to cells derived from wildtype mice. Older mice are susceptible to spontaneous development of skin disease. A significant portion of older mice (~30%) can be expected to exhibit epidermal hyperplasia. Null mice are also less susceptible to damage induced by the neurotoxin MPTP."
