Genetic Alterations
The pRosa26.Ex1.Setd5GFP exchange vector was made on a backbone of a basal Rosa26 exchange vector, which contains a 5.166 kb sequence from the Rosa26 locus, Lox71/Lox2272 sites, and was flrted (flanked by FRT) with a Pgk-Hygro selection cassette that was used for positive selection after Recombinase-Mediated Cassette Exchange (RMCE). A GFP-SV40 polyA sequence was inserted into exon 1 of the Setd5 gene which is located upstream of the Rosa26 exon 1 and is transcribed in the opposite orientation. The GFP-polyA cassette that was inserted downstream of the Setd5 promoter knocks out Setd5 transcription and provides a reporter for Setd5 gene expression.

Strain Development
Gene targeting and RMCE was performed in mESCs derived from 129S6 mice. The chimeric mice were crossed with Flpe mice to remove the hygromycin resistance gene and then backcrossed for 4 generations with CD-1 mice.

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.

The donor or their institution limits the distribution to non-profit institutions only.

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
036985-JAX-SPERM Cryo-preserved spermatozoa $437.00 / Non-Profit Aliquot Approximate quantity3
036985-JAX-RESUS Litter recovered from cryo-archive $2,022.00 / Non-Profit Litter Recovered litter4; additional fees for any special requests.
Cryopreserved material may be available upon request, please inquire to for more information.

3 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.

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.
