The Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Center (MMRRC) will be attending the Society of Neuroscience Meeting in San Diego November 9-13 (booth 3831). Among the thousands of model systems within the MMRRC repository, the MMRRC has 440 neuroscience models in 700 major Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) categories. If you are attending the meeting, then please consider visiting our booth (#3831) and speaking directly with one of our knowledgeable customer service staff members.

When expressed in mice, high levels of Neuregulin 1 (Nrg1) lead to behavioral deficits and hypofunction of glutamatergic and GABAergic pathways similar to that found in human patients with schizophrenia. Don-Yin Min, et al. found that these effects are diminished when Nrg1 levels are returned to normal.
The MMRRC has related mouse models.
Welcome to the Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Centers (MMRRC) Web site.
The MMRRC distributes and cryopreserves scientifically valuable, genetically engineered mouse strains and mouse ES cell lines with potential value for the genetics and biomedical research community. We are a national network of breeding and distribution facilities plus an information coordinating center serving together as NIH's premier repository of spontaneous and induced mutant mouse and cell lines. The MMRRC is supported by the National Center for Research Resources at the National Institutes of Health.
Strains of mice are maintained in a cryopreserved state unless demand warrants that a live colony be established. Live mice are supplied from a production colony, from a colony recovered from cryopreservation, or via micro-injection of a cell line into host blastocysts. At its option, an MMRRC facility may offer cryopreserved material for resuscitation at the recipient scientist's institution. The MMRRC charges fees to partially cover repository costs; please see our Fees page for details.
