Origin: Spontaneous mutation congenic on a NOD/ShiLtJ. Mice are homozygous for the scid mutation (Prkdcscid) commonly (referred to as scid). Mutation occurs in the gene encoding the catalytic sub-unit of DNA activated protein kinase (Prkdc). To Charles River Laboratories France from The Jackson Laboratory in March 2003.
