Issued by
National Institute on Aging (NIA)    (

The NIA announces the development of an aging colony of mutant and engineered mouse models of interest to the aging research community.  Currently the colony consists of four lines: Snell Dwarf mice, Ames Dwarf mice, a GFP reporter transgenic line, and the mutant alpha-synuclein transgenic line B6; C3H-Tg (Prnp-SNCA) M83/Vle.  The colony was recently initiated so availability is limited.  The goal of this colony is to provide small numbers of mice at different ages to facilitate NIH-funded studies on aging.  Information on the mouse models, selected references, and ordering procedures and forms are available on the web at
