These mice possess loxP sites on either side of exons 2 and 3 of the targeted gene. Mice that are homozygous for this allele are viable and fertile. Northern blot and RT-PCR analysis of brain tissue from homozygotes reveal gene product (mRNA) transcription levels and size are the same as wildtype. When these mutant mice are bred to mice that express Cre recombinase, resulting offspring will have exons 2 and 3 deleted in the cre-expressing tissues.
A loxP site flanked targeting vector containing hygromycin resistance and thymidine kinase genes under the control of the cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter was utilized in the construction of this mutant. This selection cassette was inserted into intron 3 of the targeted gene, and another loxP site was inserted into intron 1. This construct was electroporated into 129S4/SvJae derived J1 embryonic stem (ES) cells which were transiently transfected with a cytomegalovirus-driven Cre recombinase adenovirus vector to remove the selection cassette. ES cells in which Cre recombination resulted in exons 2 and 3 being flanked by loxP sites (the loxP1, 2/3 locus) were injected into C57BL/6J blastocysts. The resulting chimeric animals were crossed to C57BL/6 mice, and then backcrossed to the same for 39 for generations. Upon arrival at The Jackson Laboratory, the mice were crossed to C57BL/6J (Stock No. 000664) at least once to establish the colony.

|Molecular Note||A single loxP site was inserted into intron 1 and a loxP-flanked hygromycin and thymidine kinase selection cassette was inserted into intron 3. The drug selection cassette was removed in ES cells by transient Cre expression in ES cells prior to the production of mice. The final allele has single loxP sites flanking exons 2 and 3.

At least two mice that carry the mutation (if it is a mutant strain) will be provided. Their genotypes may not reflect those discussed in the strain description. Please inquire for possible genotypes and see additional details below.
Cryorecovery - Standard.
Progeny testing is not required.
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).
