Background Strain C57BL/6
Donor Strain 129S2 via D3 ES cell line
 
Donating InvestigatorDr. Richard Hynes,   Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Description
Mice homozygous for the Cdh3tm1Hyn targeted mutation (P-cadherin deficient) are viable and fertile with females able to nurse and maintain their litters. Virgin homozygous mutant females display precocious differentiation of the mammary gland. Aging mice develop hyperplasia and dysplasia of the mammary epithelium. In addition, mammary glands from P-cadherin deficient mice show abnormal lymphocyte infiltration.

Development
An EcoRI-EcoRI DNA 8.5 kb DNA fragment was isolated from lamda clone, PG21, and subcloned into Bluescript KS. The neo expression cassette, pMC1neo, was digested with XhoI-SalI and subcloned into a unique XhoI site in exon 11. The BamHI-BamHI DNA fragment was subcloned into a plasmid containing the pMC1-HSVTK cassette. The construct was linearized with NotI and electroporated into D3 ES cells, and colonies were selected with G418 and gancyclovir. An EcoRI-BamHI genomic 0.7 kb DNA fragment located immediately 5' to the short arm of the targeting vector was used as a probe. The targeted ES clones were injected into blastocysts from C57BL/6 mice.

The Jackson Laboratory's Genotype Promise

The Jackson Laboratory has rigorous genetic quality control and mutant gene genotyping programs to ensure the genetic background of JAX® Mice strains as well as the genotypes of strains with identified molecular mutations. JAX® Mice strains are only made available to researchers after meeting our standards. However, the phenotype of each strain may not be fully characterized and/or captured in the strain data sheets. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a strain's phenotype will meet all expectations. To ensure that JAX® Mice will meet the needs of individual research projects or when requesting a strain that is new to your research, we suggest ordering and performing tests on a small number of mice to determine suitability for your particular project.
