Allele Symbol: Ptpn11tm6Bgn
Name: targeted mutation 6, Benjamin Neel
Alteration at locus: Targeted Mutation
Gene Symbol: Ptpn11
Name: protein tyrosine phosphatase, non-receptor type 11
Alteration at locus: Targeted Mutation
ES Cell Line:
Homozygous phenotype: Mice that are homozygous for the targeted mutation are not viable.
Heterozygous phenotype: hen used in conjunction with a Cre recombinase-expressing strain, this strain is useful in generating tissue-specific mutants of the floxed allele. This mutant mouse strain may be useful in generating conditional mutations to study cardiac defects, fatal myeloproliferative disorder (MPD) and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML).
Strain of Origin: 129S6/SvEvTac
Strain genetic background: B6.129S6
Strain Development: A targeting vector was designed to place a loxP-neo-loxP-STOP-loxP cassette between exons 2 and 3 and to insert a D61Y point mutation and unique AgeI restriction enzyme site in exon 3 of the targeted gene. The construct was electroporated into 129S6/SvEvTac derived W4 embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into blastocysts. The resulting chimeric animals were crossed to C57BL/6 mice for a minimum of 10 generations. Upon arrival, mice were bred to C57BL/6J for at least 1 generation to establish the colony.
This strain contains the same mutation as MMRRC:036173, 129S6-Ptpn11tm1Bgn/Mmucd.
Suggested Control Mice: Wild-type littermates or C57BL/6 mice

Fee/unit (US $)
|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.
