Description
These mice possess loxP sites on either side of exon 3 of the targeted gene. Mice that are homozygous for this allele are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. When these mutant mice are bred to mice that express Cre recombinase, resulting offspring will have exon 3 deleted in the cre-expressing tissue(s).

When bred to a strain with inducible Cre recombinase expression in dendritic cells (see Stock No. 008068 for example), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of Toll-like receptor signaling during immune responses.

When bred to a strain with Cre recombinase expression in hematopoietic cells (see Stock No. 008610 for example), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of Toll-like receptor signaling and natural killer cells.

When bred to a strain with Cre recombinase expression in villi and crypt cells of the small and large intestines (see Stock No. 004586 for example), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of microbial intestinal flora.

In an attempt to offer alleles on well-characterized or multiple genetic backgrounds, alleles are frequently moved to a genetic background different from that on which an allele was first characterized. It should be noted that the phenotype could vary from that originally described. We will modify the strain description if necessary as published results become available.

Development
A FRT site flanked targeting vector containing neomycin resistance and herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase genes (HSV-TK) and a diphtheria toxin A subunit cassette was utilized in the construction of this mutant. This selection cassette was inserted upstream of exon 3 of the targeted gene, and another loxP site was inserted downstream of exon 3. This construct was electroporated into 129P2/OlaHsd derived E14 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6 blastocysts. The resulting chimeric animals were crossed to transgenic mice (on a congenic C57BL/6 genetic background) expressing FLPe recombinase under the control of the actin beta (ACTB) promoter to remove the selection cassette. Mice that retained the loxP site flanked exon 3 (and residual single FRT site) were then backcrossed to C57BL/6J for 11 generations before arriving at The Jackson Laboratory (as Stock No. 008888). Upon arrival, some mice were backcrossed to BALB/cByJ inbred mice (Stock No. 001026) for at least 5 generations to generate this congenic strain (Stock No. 009108).

Molecular Note Exon 3 was flanked by loxP sites by placing a FRT-flanked neo-cassette with a 3' loxP site upstream of exon 3 with an additional loxP site being placed downstream of exon 3. Founders were crossed with ACTB-FLPe mice to remove the neo selection cassette. Expression levels of Myd88 were unaffected by loxP insertion.

At least two mice that carry the mutation (if it is a mutant strain) will be provided. Their genotypes may not reflect those discussed in the strain description. Please inquire for possible genotypes and see additional details below.

Standard Supply

Cryopreserved. Ready for recovery. Please refer to pricing and supply notes on the strain data sheet for further information.

Supply Notes

  • Cryorecovery - Standard.
    Progeny testing is not required.

    The average number of mice provided from recovery of our cryopreserved strains is 10. The total number of animals provided, their gender and genotype will vary. We will fulfill your order by providing at least two pair of mice, at least one animal of each pair carrying the mutation of interest. Please inquire if larger numbers of animals with specific genotype and genders are needed. Animals typically ship between 10 and 14 weeks from the date of your order. If a second cryorecovery is needed in order to provide the minimum number of animals, animals will ship within 25 weeks. IMPORTANT NOTE: The genotypes of animals provided may not reflect the mating scheme utilized by The Jackson Laboratory prior to cryopreservation, or that discussed in the strain description. Please inquire about possible genotypes which will be recovered for this specific strain. The Jackson Laboratory cannot guarantee the reproductive success of mice shipped to your facility. If the mice are lost after the first three days (post-arrival) or do not produce progeny at your facility, a new order and fee will be necessary.

    Cryorecovery to establish a Dedicated Supply for greater quantities of mice. Mice recovered can be used to establish a dedicated colony to contractually supply you mice according to your requirements. Price by quotation.

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.
