Description
Mice that are homozygous for this floxed allele are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. When bred to mice with a cre recombinase gene under the control of a promoter of interest, exon 1 of the targeted gene is deleted in the tissue of interest. These mutant mice may be useful in studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying vasculogenesis and angiogenesis, the topography of neovascularization, and adult neovascularization, including tumor angiogenesis.

To test the effectiveness of this model, these mutant mice were bred to an endothelial-specific Cre-expressing transgenic mice, Tg(Tek-cre)12Flv (Stock No. 004128) . Offspring homozygous for the Cre-mediated exon 1 deletion show angiogenic remodeling defects and embryonic death identical to homozygous Efnb2tm1And mice (see Stock No. 006039).

Development
A targeting vector was designed to insert a loxP site upstream of the transcriptional start site and a loxP-flanked PGKneo cassette downstream of exon 1 of the endogenous gene. This construct was microinjected into 129S7/SvEvBrd-derived AB1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were then transiently transfected with a Cre-expressing vector to remove the PGKneo cassette. Cells harboring the recombined loxP-flanked exon 1 were injected into blastocysts. Chimeric males were bred to C57BL/6 females. Heterozygous mice were bred to C57BL/6 for 3 generations before being made homozygous. After arriving at The Jackson Laboratory, mutant mice were bred with C57BL/6J for more than two generations.

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.
