Fgf4 flox, STOCK Fgf4tm1.2Mrt/Mmcd

Gene Information

Gene Details [Including genotyping protocols]

(provided by MGI)
Allele Symbol: Fgf4tm1.2Mrt
Name: targeted mutation 1.2, Gail R Martin
Alteration at locus: Targeted Mutation
Gene Symbol: Fgf4
Name: fibroblast growth factor 4
Chromosome: 7
Alteration at locus: Targeted Mutation

Genetic Alterations:
A cassette consisting of a Pgk-neo gene flanked by frt sites, and a single loxP site was inserted into intron 1, and a second loxP site was inserted 3' of the stop codon in exon 3, thereby generating an Fgf4 neo allele. Using a beta-actin-flp transgene, neo was excised from the Fgf4 neo allele to generate Fgf4 flox, in which essential coding sequences in exons 2 and 3 are flanked by loxP sites.

Genotype Determination:

ES Cell Line: CGR8 derived from 129 x C57BL/6 hybrid

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

Phenotype

Homozygous phenotype: Fgf4 flox homozygotes are viable and fertile and do not display any obvious phenotypes.

Heterozygous phenotype: Fgf4 flox heterozygotes are viable and fertile and do not display any obvious phenotypes.

Strain of Origin: 129 x C57BL6

Strain genetic background: mixed, including 129, CD1, C57BL/6, FVB/N, Swiss Black

Strain Development: This mouse line was bred to various mouse strains (see above), leading to a mixed genetic background

Suggested Control Mice:

  • Wildtype littermates

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@ucdavis.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.

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.
