Description
Hearts of these targeted mutation mice are hypercontractile, protecting them from heart failure induced by pressure overload. Homozygotes are viable, fertile, and have no overt phenotype. The targeted mutation eliminates expression, as determined by Western blot. This strain may be useful in studies of heart failure.

Development
The exon encoding the ATP-binding region was replaced with a neomycin resistance cassette. A 129-derived embryonic stem (ES) cell line was used to create the mutation. Chimera's were crossed to C57BL/6 and the line was maintained on a mixed C57BL/6 and 129 background 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.
