Gene Information

Genetic Alterations:
This is an ES cell line, drived from the E14Tg2A.4 mouse ES cell line. Mouse E14 ES cells were electroporated with a modified human BAC for NKX2-5-EmGFP to make the transgenic reporter line. The BAC is based on RP11-88L12, and carries an in-frame P2A-EmGFP insertion, a Zeocin cassette, and a SV40- Neo selection cassette.

Genotype Determination:

Parental ES Cell Line: E14Tg2A.4
Mouse strain from which the parental cell line was derived: 129P2/OlaHsd

Donor: Bruce Conklin, M.D., Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease

Requested cell lines are tested by PCR analysis for mycoplasma spp. and Murine Parvoviruses (MPV) upon completion of expansion and prior to shipment. Mice derived from requested cell lines via Microinjection services will be pathogen tested prior to delivery of mice and health reports will be provided. If you require additional health status information prior to requesting microinjection please email

Order Request Information

Cryo-preserved ES cell line material can usually be shipped in 2 to 4 weeks. Genetic confirmation adds an additional 4 to 6 weeks (but is recommended to confirm that the material has not been contaminated or otherwise incorrectly identified). The microinjection services add an additional 10 to 12 weeks and can vary from cell line to cell line.

Distribution of this strain requires submission of the MMRRC Conditions of Use (COU). A link to the COU web form will be provided via email after an order has been placed; the form should be completed then or the email forwarded to your institutional official for completion.

The donor or their institution limits the distribution to non-profit institutions only.

Additional charges may apply for any special requests. Shipping costs are in addition to the basic distribution/resuscitation fees. Information on shipping costs and any additional charges will be provided by the supplying MMRRC facility.
