Description
These mice possess loxP sites on either side of exon 3 of the targeted gene. Mice that are homozygous for this conditional mutant allele are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. When used in conjunction with a Cre recombinase-expressing strain, this strain is useful in generating tissue-specific mutants of the floxed allele. This strain may be useful in cancer or cell cycle/senescence studies.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to introduce a puromycin resistance cassette flanked by loxP sites to intron 3, and an additional loxP site to intron 2. The construct was electroporated into 129S4/SvJae-derived J1 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Transient Cre excision was used to excise the puromycin cassette, leaving exon 3 flanked by loxP sites. This strain was maintained on a mixed background composed of C57BL/6 and 129 by the donating laboratory.

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.
