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

Phenotype

None distinguishable.

Strain of Origin: FVB/NTac

Strain genetic background: FVB/NTac

Strain Development: alpha 1(I) collagen promoter fragments were fused to Cre recombinase cDNA. The constructs were linearized and inserts purified and injected into the pronuclei of fertilized FVB mouse oocytes, which were then implanted in the oviducts of pseudopregnant CD1 foster mothers for development to term.

Suggested Control Mice: Wild-type littermates

Research Applications

  • This strain is useful for osteoblast-specific deletion of genes flanked by loxP in osteoblasts.

Strain Origin

Donor: Gerard Karsenty, Ph.D., Baylor College of Medicine

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.

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.
