Description
Mice homozygous for this targeted mutation are viable and fertile and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities in this genetic background. No gross phenotype has been observed in these mice, as yet. This strain may be useful in studies of development and cancer.

Development
A targeting vector was used to replace a 3' region of exon 1 and a 2.3 kb downstream intron sequence with PGK-neo in reverse orientation. The targeting vector was electroporated into 129S2/SvPas-derived D3 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. The strain has been maintained on a mixed C57BL/6 and 129S2/SvPas background by the donating laboratory.

Allele Symbol Rbl1tm1Tyj
Allele Name targeted mutation 1, Tyler Jacks
Allele Type Targeted (Null/Knockout)
Common Name(s) p107-;
Mutation Made ByDr. Tyler Jacks,   Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Strain of Origin129S2/SvPas
ES Cell Line NameD3
ES Cell Line Strain129S2/SvPas
Gene Symbol and Name Rbl1, retinoblastoma-like 1 (p107)
Chromosome 2
Gene Common Name(s) AW547426; CP107; PRB1; expressed sequence AW547426; p107;
Molecular Note A PGK-neomycin cassette replaced sequences in exon 1 and a downstream intron of the Rbl1 gene. The authors predict that the mutant allele will synthesize only the first 22 amino acids of the wild-type protein. RBL1 protein was not detected in embryonic fibroblasts derived from homozygous mutant mice, or in homozygous mutant E18 embryos. Rbl1 transcript was not detected in homozygous mutant E18 embryos.

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.
