Strain Information

Name: ATP-binding cassette, sub-family C (CFTR/MRP), member 8; targeted mutation 1.1, Mark A Magnuson
Synonyms: Sur1neo, SUR1-
Type: Allele
Species: Mus musculus (mouse)
Chromosome: 7
Alteration at locus: Targeted Mutation
Name: ATP-binding cassette, sub-family C (CFTR/MRP), member 8
Synonyms: SUR1, Sur, D930031B21Rik
Type: Gene
Species: Mus musculus (mouse)
Chromosome: 7
Alteration at locus: Targeted Mutation
NCBI: 20927
Homologene: 68048
Genetic Alterations
A gene targeting strategy that involved the use of Cre/loxP was used generate mice that globally lack the proximal promoter and exon 1 of the sulfonylurea receptor type 1 (Sur1) gene. A pgk-neomycin resistance gene remains in the locus.
Genotype Determination
  • Genotyping Protocol(s)
  • Center protocol and contact for technical support will be shipped with mice.
  • ES Cell Line
    RW-4 derived from 129X1/SvJ
    Homozygous: Mice that are homozygous null for Sur1 (Abcc8) are viable, fertile and grossly indistinguishable from their wild type littermates except after 16 wks when they become mildly hypoglycemia. Mice lacking Sur1 (Abcc8) lack functional K-ATP channels in pancreatic beta cells but remain euglycemic despite having beta cells that are constantly depolarized due to the lack of this protein.

    These mice are also viable and do not differ from wild type.

    Colony and Husbandry Information

    Colony Surveillance Program and Current Health Reports

    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 .

    Order Request Information

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

    Cryopreserved material may be available upon request, please inquire to for more information.

    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.

    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.

    Units Notes
    011968-UNC-RESUS Litter recovered from cryo-archive $2,914.00 / $4,837.00
    Non-Profit / For-Profit
    Litter Recovered litter4; additional fees for any special requests.
    Cryopreserved material may be available upon request, please inquire to for more information.

    4 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.
