Description
Homozygous "floxed B-raf" (B-raff/f) mice are viable and fertile with normal B-raf protein expression. When bred to mice expressing Cre recombinase under the control of a promoter of interest, exon 12 of the targeted gene is deleted in the tissue of interest. These mutant mice may be useful in neurological studies such as Ras/Raf and MEK/ERK signaling, synaptic (neural) plasticity, learning and memory.

For example, when crossed to a strain expressing Cre recombinase in nervous tissue (see Stock No. 003771), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of neuron development.

For example, when crossed to a strain expressing interferon inducible Cre recombinase (see Stock No. 003755), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of extraembryonic mammmalian development.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to place loxP sites on both sides of exon 12 (the first exon that encodes the B-raf kinase domain) of the targeted gene. The construct was electroporated into (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)-derived R1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were used to generate chimeric males. These mice were maintained by backcrossing on a 129T2/SvEmsJ (Stock No. 002065) inbred genetic background for at least 9 generations prior to arrival at The Jackson Laboratory.

Molecular Note A targeting construct was designed to flank exon 12 with loxP sites. This exon is the first to encode the kinase domain. Its excision would result in a frame shift in the ORF, resulting in a null mutation. Western blot confirmed that insertion of the loxP sites did not affect protein expression levels.

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.
