Donating Investigator David Ornitz,   Washington University School of Medicine

Description
Approximately 50% of mice that are homozygous for the Fgfr3tm1Dor targeted mutation die between birth and 21 days of age. Surviving pups may live as long as 8 months. RNAase protection analysis of adult homozygous brain tissue indicates that an abnormal transcript may be generated, but that no functional protein results. Severe skeletal defects (kyphosis, scoliosis, crooked tails, curvature and overgrowth of long bones) are evident. Inner ear defects (lack of pillar cell differentiation and tunnel of Corti formation) resulting in profound deafness are also observed.

Development
A targeting vector containing neomycin resistance and two herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase genes was used to disrupt a region encoding the Ig-like domains II and III as well as the transmembrane domain. The construct was electroporated into 129S6/SvEv-derived SM-1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. The resulting chimeric animals were backcrossed to C57BL/6 mice.

Mutation Made By David Ornitz,   Washington University School of Medicine
Strain of Origin129S6/SvEvTac
ES Cell Line NameSM1
ES Cell Line Strain129S6/SvEvTac

Molecular Note A neomycin cassette replaced 3 kb of sequence that encodes the Ig-like domain II through the transmembrane domain. RNAase protection analysis on samples derived from homozygous mutant adult brain indicates that this allele produces an aberrant transcript. However, any translation product produced would be unable to bind ligand and is predicted not to be transported to the cell surface. [MGI Ref ID J:32991]

    The average number of mice provided from recovery of our cryopreserved strains is 10. The total number of animals provided, their gender and genotype will vary. We will fulfill your order by providing at least two pair of mice, at least one animal of each pair carrying the mutation of interest. Please inquire if larger numbers of animals with specific genotype and genders are needed. Animals typically ship between 10 and 14 weeks from the date of your order. If a second cryorecovery is needed in order to provide the minimum number of animals, animals will ship within 25 weeks. IMPORTANT NOTE: The genotypes of animals provided may not reflect the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation, or that discussed in the strain description. Please inquire about possible genotypes which will be recovered for this specific strain. The Jackson Laboratory cannot guarantee the reproductive success of mice shipped to your facility. If the mice are lost after the first three days (post-arrival) or do not produce progeny at your facility, a new order and fee will be necessary.

    Cryorecovery to establish a Dedicated Supply for greater quantities of mice. Mice recovered can be used to establish a dedicated colony to contractually supply you mice according to your requirements. Price by quotation. For more information on Dedicated Supply, please contact JAX® Services, Tel: 1-800-422-6423 (from U.S.A., Canada or Puerto Rico only) or 1-207-288-5845 (from any location).

  • Cryopreserved Embryos
    Available to most shipping destinations1
    This strain is also available as cryopreserved embryos2. Orders for cryopreserved embryos may be placed with our Customer Service Department. Experienced technicians at The Jackson Laboratory have recovered frozen embryos of this strain successfully. We will provide you enough embryos to perform two embryo transfers. The Jackson Laboratory does not guarantee successful recovery at your facility. For complete information on purchasing embryos, please visit our Cryopreserved Embryos web page.

    1 Shipments cannot be made to Australia due to Australian government import restrictions.
    2 Embryos for most strains are cryopreserved at the two cell stage while some strains are cryopreserved at the eight cell stage. If this information is important to you, please contact Customer Service.
  • Cryorecovery - Standard.
    Progeny testing is not required.

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.
