Description
These transgenic mice express the activated rat c-neu oncogene (Erbb2) under the control of the mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) long terminal repeat (LTR) promoter. The activated, or transforming, version of the rat c-neu oncogene has a valine to glutamic acid substitution at acid 664 (Val664 to Glu664). Non-uniform and random transgene expression is detected by RNase protection assay in mammary gland epithelium from hemizygous mice. Tumor formation is multifocal, stochastic and matches the expression pattern of the transgene. While no transgene expression is detected at 5 and 8 weeks of age in normal mammary gland tissue, it is detected in adenocarcinomas from older (23 week old) mice. The donating investigator indicates that 50% of transgenic mice derived from the TG.NK founder line, develop tumors within 6-12 months of age. Mice that are homozygous for the targeted mutation are viable, fertile and normal in size.

Development
The MMTV/c-neu transgene was designed with a sequence encoding the mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) long terminal repeat (LTR) promoter, 4.6 kbp cDNA sequence encoding the activated rat c-neu oncogene (Erbb2), and an SV40 polyadenylation sequence. The activated, or transforming, version of the rat c-neu oncogene has a valine to glutamic acid substitution at acid 664 (Val664 to Glu664). This transgene was microinjected into fertilized FVB/N eggs.

        involves: FVB/N
  • tumorigenesis
  • increased mammary adenocarcinoma incidence
    • female mice exhibit diffuse, polyclonal tumor masses   (MGI Ref ID J:48632)
    • tumor morphogenesis corresponds to transgene expression   (MGI Ref ID J:48632)

        FVB/N-Tg(MMTV-Erbb2)NK1Mul
  • tumorigenesis

    • about 20% of mutants develop mammary tumors by the 25th week of age, and by the 30th week, tumor incidence increases to 83%   (MGI Ref ID J:67457)
    • high dose of flaxseed oil (with a an omega6:omega3 fatty acid ratio of about 1) results in some delay in the growth of mammary tumors, however low and mid doses with omega6:omega3 ratios of 7.7 and 3.1 enhance tumor development   (MGI Ref ID J:67457)
    • melatonin treatment delays the appearance of palpable tumors   (MGI Ref ID J:67457)
    • combination of both flaxseed oil and melatonin results in a slight delay of tumor development, similar that seen with melatonin only   (MGI Ref ID J:67457)

Promoter MMTV, Mouse Mammary Tumor Virus, MMTV
General Note Tumor formation in transgenic mice is multifocal, stochastic, and matches the expression pattern of the transgene. While no transgene expression is detected at 5 and 8 weeks of age in normal mammary gland tissue, expression is detected in adenocarcinomasfrom older (23 week old) mice. 50% of transgenic mice derived from this founder line develop tumors within 6-12 months of age.
Molecular Note This transgene contains the MMTV (mouse mammary tumor virus) LTR promoter, a 4.6 kb cDNA from the rat Erbb2 (avian erythroblastosis B2) oncogene, and an SV40 polyadenylation site sequence. The activated form of the rat gene is used in this construct, which differs from the wild-type allele by a point mutation, Val664Glu. Non-uniform and random transgene expression is detected by RNase protection assay in mammary gland epithelium from hemizygous transgenic mice. Six transgenic lines were produced (NA, NB,NF, NK, NL and NM). [MGI Ref ID J:48632]

Repository-Live.
Repository-Live represents an exclusive set of over 1500 unique mouse models across a vast array of research areas. Breeding colonies provide mice for both large and small orders and fluctuate in size depending on current demand for each strain. If a Repository strain is not immediately available, then within 2 to 3 business days, you will receive an estimated availability timeframe for your inquiry or order along with various delivery options. Repository strains typically are delivered at 4 to 8 weeks of age and will not exceed 12 weeks of age on the day of shipping. We will note and try to accommodate requests for specific ages of Repository strains but cannot guarantee provision of these strains at specific ages. However, if cohorts of mice (5 or more of one gender) are needed at a specific age range for experiments, please let us know.

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.
