These Gli3flox mutant mice harbor loxP sites flanking exon 8 of the GLI-Kruppel family member GLI3 (Gli3) gene and may be useful in generating conditional mutations for studying Hedgehog/Sonic Hedgehog signaling in the development of many organs (such as central nervous system and limb patterning), as well as the role of Gli3 in adult organs.

Description

The genotypes of the animals provided may not reflect those discussed in the strain description or the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation. Please inquire for possible genotypes for this specific strain.

Description
Mice homozygous for this Gli3flox conditional allele are viable and fertile, with loxP sites flanking exon 8 of the targeted gene. When bred to mice that express Cre recombinase, the resulting offspring will have exon 8 deleted in the cre-expressing tissue(s). This results in a frameshift mutation upstream of the DNA-binding domain following splicing of mRNA from exon 7 to 9 and is reported to confer the null phenotype. These Gli3flox mutant mice may be useful in generating conditional mutations for studying Hedgehog/Sonic Hedgehog signaling in the development of many organs (such as central nervous system and limb patterning), as well as the role of Gli3 in adult organs.

When bred to a strain expressing Cre recombinase in the nervous system (see Stock No. 003771 for example), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of mid/hind brain development.

When bred to a strain with a En1 null allele and expressing Cre recombinase in brain (see Stock No. 007916 for example), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of mid/hind brain development.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to place a loxP site and frt-flanked neo cassette upstream of exon 8, as well as a loxP site (containing an EcoRV site) downstream of exon 8 of the targeted gene. This construct was electroporated into 129S6/SvEvTac-derived W4 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into recipient blastocysts and chimeric mice were bred with C57BL/6 mice. The resulting Gli3flox-neo mice were then bred to an Flp recombinase expressing strain (on a 129S6/SvEvTac genetic background; see Stock No. 003800) to remove the frt-flanked neo cassette; thus generating Gli3flox offspring. Mice harboring only the Gli3flox mutation were selected and bred to / maintained on an outbred Swiss Webster genetic background for many generations prior to arrival at The Jackson Laboratory. In addition, the donating investigator reports that although these mice harbor no additional mutant loci, they may contain incidental genetic background contributions as a result of past matings with other mutant mouse strains. Upon arrival, Gli3flox mice were bred to 129S1/SvImJ (Stock No. 002448) for at least one generation to establish the colony.

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.
