Name: targeted mutation 1, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
Alteration at locus: Knock-In
Name: gene trap ROSA 26, Philippe Soriano
Alteration at locus: Knock-In
ES Cell Line: JM8.F6 derived from C57BL/6NTac
When bred with mice containing a frt-flanked sequence of interest, FLP-mediated recombination will result in deletion of the frt-flanked sequence(s) in the offspring. This FLP deleter strain may be useful for generating frt-FLP conditional mutations and serves as a source of FLP1-expressing primary cell lines.
Strain of Origin: C57BL/6NTac
Strain genetic background: C57BL/6NTac
Strain Development: ES cell targeting in JM8.F6 ES cells derived from the C57BL/6NTac strain. Upon arrival at MMRRC, the strain was bred to C57BL/6NTac. Homozygous offspring were mated to establish a homozygous colony for distribution.
Suggested Control Mice: Wild-type littermates
Coat color: Black
MMRRC Breeding System: Random intra-strain mating
Overall Breeding Performance: Good

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

|Litter||Recovered litter1; additional fees for any special requests.|
|Aliquot||Approximate quantity3: 20-40 embryos / aliquot|
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.
