Description
Aurora kinase A is critical in centrosome separation and bipolar spindle formation, and is involved in the regulation of apoptosis. These mice possess loxP sites on either side of exon 2 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 2 deleted in the cre-expressing tissue(s).

When bred to a strain with tamoxifen-inducible Cre recombinase expression (see Stock No. 004847 for example), this mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of mitosis and apoptosis.

Development
A loxP and FRT site flanked targeting vector containing a NEO cassette was utilized in the construction of this mutant. This selection cassette was inserted upstream of exon 2 of the targeted gene, and another loxP site was inserted upstream of exon 3. This construct was electroporated into 129P2/OlaHsd derived E14 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into C57BL/6J blastocysts. Resulting chimeric male animals were backcrossed to wildtype C57BL/6J mice. These AurAneo mice were then crossed to X-linked CMV-Cre mice, on the mixed C57BL/6J;129S5 genetic background, which express Cre recombinase under the control of the cytomegalovirus promoter knocked into the Hprt locus (Hprttm1(CMV-cre)Brd), to remove the Neo selection cassette. Mice that retained the loxP site flanked exon 2, AurAf, were then bred to C57BL/6J mice for 7 generations to remove the Hprttm1(CMV-cre)Brd allele. Upon arrival at The Jackson Laboratory, the mice were crossed to C57BL/6J (Stock No. 000664) at least 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.
