Strain: SHR/N-cp

Symbol: SHR/N-cp
Strain: SHR-cp
Substrain: N
RGD ID: 728195
Citation ID: RRID:RRRC_00231
Ontology ID: RS:0000750
Previously known as: SHR/N-cp
Type: congenic
Source: Rat Resource and Research Center
Origin: The spontaneously hypertensive corpulent (SHR/N-cp) rat developed at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is a congenic strain in which obese homozygotes {cp/cp) are characterized by genetic obesity, mild hypertension, hyper-insulinemia, and glucose intolerance. This rat strain was initially derived by mating a male Koletsky rat that was heterozygous for the corpulent gene (cp/ +) to a female SHR ratof the Okamoto strain. A minimum of 12 backcrosses were carried out to eliminate the non-cp genes of the Ko-letsky strain. The obese (cp/cp) littermates develop glucosuria, proteinuria, and renal structural lesions resemblingdiabetic glomerulosclerosis.
Genetic Markers: cp (autosomal recessive)
Genetic Status: Homozygous
Inbred Generations: F8
Last Known Status: Cryopreserved Embryo (as of 2021-01-20)

RGD Curation Notes
Note Type Note Reference
null KOLETSKY rats were derived from breeding of a hypertensive female SHR(Okamoto and Aoki 1963) with a normotensive male of Sprague-Dawley. After several generations of selective inbreeding of hypertensive offspring from this cross, an abnormal phenotype by marked obesity and genetic mutation was noted smong some of the litters
