The most important tool for obtaining insight into the function of genes is the use of mutant model organisms. Homologous recombination in embryonic stem cells allows the systematic production of mouse mutants for any gene that has been cloned. Gene trap strategies have been designed to interrupt even unknown genes which are tagged by the inserted vector and can be characterised structurally and functionally. Complementary to such 'gene-driven' approaches, 'phenotype-driven' approaches are necessary to identify new genes or gene products through a search for mutants with specific defects, uncovering the function of genetic pathways in physiological and pathological processes. Mutagenesis using the alkylating agent N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (ENU) is a powerful approach for the production of such mouse mutants. Since ENU induces mainly point mutations in premeiotic spermatogonia, this strategy allows the production of multiple alleles of a particular gene, which is pivotal for a fine tuned analysis of its function.

In the post-genome era, the mouse will have a major role as a model system for functional genome analysis. This requires a large number of mutants similar to the collections available from other model organisms such as Drosophila melanogaster and Caenorhabditis elegans. Here we report on a systematic, genome-wide, mutagenesis screen in mice. As part of the German Human Genome Project, we have undertaken a large-scale ENU-mutagenesis screen for dominant mutations and a limited screen for recessive mutations. In screening over 14,000 mice for a large number of clinically relevant parameters, we recovered 182 mouse mutants for a variety of phenotypes. In addition, 247 variant mouse mutants are currently in genetic confirmation testing and will result in additional new mutant lines. This mutagenesis screen, along with the screen described in the accompanying paper, leads to a significant increase in the number of mouse models available to the scientific community. Our mutant lines are freely accessible to non-commercial users (for information, see http://www.gsf.de/ieg/groups/enu-mouse.html). [less ▲]
