Description
These mice possess loxP sites on either side of exons 3-5 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 exons 3-5 deleted in the cre-expressing tissue(s).

When bred to a strain expressing Cre recombinase specifically in the liver (see Stock No. 003574 for example), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of hepatic heme biosynthesis and porphyrias.

When bred to a strain expressing Cre recombinase specifically in skeletal muscle, this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of neuromuscular junction physiology and muscular dystrophy.

Development
A loxP site flanked targeting vector containing neomycin resistance and thymidine kinase genes was utilized in the construction of this mutant. This selection cassette was inserted downstream of exon 5 of the targeted gene, and another loxP site was inserted upstream of exon 3. This construct was electroporated into ?Sv129? derived embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into recipient blastocysts. The resulting chimeric animals were crossed to C57BL/6 mice. The mice were then crossed to transgenic mice expressing Cre recombinase under the control of the adenovirus EIIa promoter (B6.FVB-Tg(EIIa-cre)C5379Lmgd/J) to remove the neo selection cassette. Mice that retained the loxP site flanked exons 3-5 were then bred to C57BL/6N mice for 7 generations. The EIIa-cre transgene has been removed. Upon arrival at The Jackson Laboratory the mice were crossed with C57BL/6NJ once 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.
