Description
These Fox-2flox mutant mice possess loxP sites flanking exons 6-7 of the RNA binding protein, fox-1 homolog 2 (Rbfox2) gene. Mice that are homozygous for this allele are viable, fertile, and normal in size. Fox-2 is widely expressed, highest in brain and heart, and regulates alternative splicing in vertebrates by binding specifically to (U)GCAUG sequences. When these mutant mice are bred to mice that express Cre recombinase, the resulting offspring will have exons 6-7 deleted in the Cre-expressing tissue, resulting in inactivation of Fox-2 gene function.

When bred to mice carrying Tg(Pcp2-cre)2Mpin (Stock No. 004146) and Rbfox1tm1.1Dblk (Stock No. 014089) , Cre recombinase expression in the Purkinje cells may be useful in studies of Purkinje cell pacemaking.

Development
A targeting vector was designed to insert loxP sites flanking exons 6-7 of the RNA binding protein, fox-1 homolog 2 (Rbfox2) gene, followed by a frt-flanked neomycin resistance (neo) cassette. The construct was electroporated into 129S2/Sv-derived embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were transiently transfected with a pTurboCre expression plasmid to delete the neo cassette. Resulting ES cells contained multiple gene rearrangments; intact floxed-exon 6-7, intact floxed-neo cassette, or excision of both exons 6-7 and the neo cassette. Correctly targeted ES cells, containing only the floxed-exons 6-7, were injected into C57BL/6J blastocysts and resulting chimeric males were bred to C57BL/6J females. These mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J mice for at least 6 generations resulting in a colony of Fox-2flox mice. Upon arrival, mice were bred to C57BL/6J inbred mice (Stock No. 000664) 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.
