|These microRNA 325 conditional mutant mice are designed to generate a null allele or a lacZ tagged null allele when combined with Flp or Cre recombinase expressing strains. lacZ expression is observed in the central nervous system, brain, spinal cord and visual sensory system.. This mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of microRNA biology.|

Mice that are homozygous for the targeted mutation are viable and fertile. When combined with a Flp recombinase-expressing strain, the lacZ and neomycin genes are removed leaving an FRT site and the loxP-flanked miR325 stem loop. A further cross to a Cre-recombinase-expressing strain generates the null allele. When combined with a Cre-recombinase-expressing strain, the neomycin cassette and miR325 stem loop are removed leaving a lacZ tagged null allele (FRT-lacZ-loxP). LacZ expression is observed in the central nervous system, brain, spinal cord and visual sensory system. This mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of microRNA biology. Additional information about this mirKO mouse can be found here.
A targeting vector was designed to insert an FRT site followed by a lacZ gene, a loxP site, a neomycin cassette, an FRT site and a loxP site (FRT-lacZ-loxP-Neo-FRT-loxP) upstream of the microRNA stem loop and one loxP site immediately downstream of the microRNA stem loop. The construct was electroporated into 129P2/OlaHsd-derived E14 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Chimeric mice were crossed with a mouse of mixed genetic background (which incorporated FVB), then crossed to inbred C57BL/6. Upon arrival, mice were bred to C57BL/6J for at least 1 generation to establish the colony.

Breeding & Husbandry While maintaining a live colony, these mice have been bred as heterozygotes, however, the Donating Investigator indicates that homozygotes are viable and fertile.
