Cutaneous phenotypes of Ercc2tm2(ERCC2)Jhjh/Ercc2tm2(ERCC2)Jhjh and Ercc2tm2(ERCC2)Jhjh/Ercc2tm2Jmch mice

mortality/aging

• acquire an aged appearance beginning at 3 months of age

neoplasm
N
• no sign of cancer predisposition after exposure to a daily dose of 80 J/m2 UV
• increased UV- and DMBA-induced skin cancer susceptibility

pigmentation
• show patchy depigmentation earlier and more frequently than wild-type as they age

behavior/neurological
• occasional tremors, however no overt myelination defect

growth/size/body

• evident from birth (J:48256)

hematopoietic system
• mild normochrome anemia at 6 months of age (J:76608)

• progressive with age

reproductive system
• older females (~16 months) showed ovarian dysfunction, ranging from complete anovulation to sporadic, seemingly normal, ovulation
(J:48256)

endocrine/exocrine glands
• benign hyperplasia of the sebaceous gland

homeostasis/metabolism
• decrease in serum levels of branched-chain amino acids (valine, leucine, and isoleucine) at 6 months of age, indicating starvation

cellular
• following UV exposure DNA incision activity and unscheduled DNA synthesis are decreased compared to wild-type MEFs

integument
• benign hyperplasia of the sebaceous gland
• reduced cysteine content of hair and increased fraction of intermedaite filament keratins in hair
• show patchy depigmentation earlier and more frequently than wild-type as they age
• progressive hair loss, beginning at head around P19
• by 4 weeks of age, most hair absent, except a small band of fur at feet and tail
• mew coat grew with second cycle of hair growth, but progressive hair loss again followed
• abnormal cuticle structure
• follicular plugging and dilation
• thickening of the granular layer (J:48256)
• ichthyosis, particularly in the neck region
• ichthyosis, particulary in the neck region
