Strain Detail Sheet

Strain Name    :

B6.Cg-Tg(Fos/EGFP)1-3Brth/Mmnc

Stock Number :

010600-UNC

Gene Information

Gene Details [Including genotyping protocols]

(provided by MGI)
Allele Symbol: Tg(Fos/EGFP)1-3Brth
Name: transgene insertion 1-3, Alison Barth
Alteration at locus: Transgenic
Transgene: EGFP (Jelly Fish)
Name: Enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein
Alteration at locus: Transgenic
Promoter: Fos
Name: FBJ osteosarcoma oncogene
Alteration at locus: Transgenic

Genetic Alterations:
An in frame fusion was made of EGFP to the C-terminal end of the last exon from the mouse fos gene. The construct contains approximately 1 kb upstream of the transcription start, all the introns and exons from the endogenous mouse fos gene, and the EGFP cassette with a B-acting poly A tail (from the Clontech expression vector).

Genotype Determination:

ES Cell Line: Not Applicable

Strain Description [Including phenotype, strain background, strain development and suggested control mice]

Phenotype

Homozygous phenotype: Unknown

Hemizygous phenotype: Show activity-dependent expression of the fosGFP fusion protein in the nucleus of neruons in the CNS. Transgene expression in other organs where fos is expressed was not systematically evaluated.

Strain of Origin: FVB/DBA F1

Strain genetic background: C57BL/6

Strain Development: Animals are transgenic, insertion locus of transgene (>10 copies) is unknown. Injections were performed on fertilized oocytes from FVB/DBA F1 mothers. Transgenic offspring were bred to C57BL/6 animals at the home facility at Carnegie Mellon University.

Strain Genetic Background Validation: A sample from this MMRRC strain was analyzed using the Mouse Universal Genotyping Array (MUGA) and MMRRC computational tools were used to assess the genetic background. A summary of the data can be found here.

Colony and Husbandry Information

Special Considerations

None

Health Status Report

Mice recovered from a cryo-archive will have health surveillance performed on recipient females. Health reports will be provided prior to shipment. If you require additional health status information, please email mmrrc_health@med.unc.edu.

Order Request Information

Availability Level

Limited quantities of breeder mice (recovered litter) are available from a cryoarchive; recovered litter usually available to ship in 3 to 4 months.

Conditions of Distribution [Including applicable technology transfer agreements]

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.

Fees

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.

Litter Recovered litter1; additional fees for any special requests.

1 The distribution fee covers the expense of resuscitating mice from the cryo-archive; you will receive the resulting litter. The litter will contain at minimum one mutant carrier; the actual number of animals and the gender and genotype ratios will vary. (Typically, multiple breeder pairs can be established from the recovered litter.) Prior to shipment, the MMRRC will provide information about the animals recovered. If you anticipate or find that you need to request specific genotypes, genders or quantities of mice in excess of what is likely from a resuscitated litter, you may discuss available options and pricing with the supplying MMRRC facility.

2 An aliquot is one straw or vial with sufficient sperm to recover at least one litter of mice, as per provided protocols, when performed at the MMRRC facility. The MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning the success of these procedures when performed outside the MMRRC facilities.

3 An aliquot contains a sufficient number of embryos (in one or more vials and based on the transfer success rate of the MMRRC facility) to transfer to at least two recipients. The MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning embryo transfer success experienced in the recipient investigator's laboratory. Neither gender nor genotype ratios are guaranteed.
