Strain Development
The Y BAC transgenic lines were produced originally by Paul Burgoyne (Francis Crick Institute, formerly National Institute for Medical Research, London) and Michael Mitchell (Aix Marseille Université, France), as part of their studies of Y genes that are critical for spermatogenesis. Classical methods of gene targeting were unsuccessful for Y genes, and thus Burgoyne and Mitchell used deletion mutants to find small regions of the Y chromosome that contain genes critical for spermatogenesis. Then, they added back Y genes as BAC transgenes, one by one, to determine which Y genes rescued the deficit in Y chromosome deletion variants with defined spermatogenic failure (e.g., PMID:11528390 and 21530259]). The Eif2s3x line was produced by Monika Ward at the University of Hawaii (PMID:24263135), who made the transgenic insertion using a BAC construct produced by Michael Mitchell. The 7 BAC transgenic lines were sent to Art Arnold (UCLA) on an MF1 or mixed MF1 background beginning in 2012, who backcrossed them for 10 or more generations to C57BL/6J. The Eif2s3x line was also backcrossed to MF1 at UCLA.

BAC DNA was injected as closed circles into fertilized eggs from CBA/Ca × C57BL/10J or randomly bred MF1 matings at the National Institute for Medical Research (PMID:21530259). The transgenic founders were crossed by the Burgoyne Lab to MF1 random-bred albino females, using BAC-specific primers listed below. In many cases, the copy number of the transgene was assessed by Southern-blot analysis (e.g., PMID:21093264). In cases where no single BAC encoded the entire gene, recombineering was used to add the missing exons as spliced cDNA.

This line is part of a group of related strains: MMRRC:43562, 43563, 43564, 43565, 43566, 43567, 43568, and 43694.
MMRRC Genetic QC Summary
The MMRRC Centers have developed a genetic QC pipeline using MiniMUGA array genotyping to provide additional information on strain backgrounds for MMRRC congenic and inbred strains. For more information on when data may be available, or to request genotyping for a strain of interest, please contact mmrrc@ucdavis.edu. Older strains may not have this information.

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 mmrrc@ucdavis.edu .
The MMRRC at UC Davis performed microbita analysis on feces samples received from the donating investigator while the mice were still at their facility. There is a MMRRC Fecal Microbiota report available for this strain.If you are interested in having the MMRRC at UC Davis perform microbiota analysis once the line is established at your facility please contact mmrrc@ucdavis.edu.
MMRRC Breeding System
Backcross
Generation
N10+ (C57BL/6J)
NOTE: "Hemizygote" as used here refers to males carrying a mutation on the X Chromosome or mice of either sex carrying an inserted transgene with no homologous allele on the other chromosome.

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 mmrrc@ucdavis.edu 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
043564-UCD-RESUS Litter recovered from cryo-archive $3,033.00 / Non-Profit Litter Recovered litter4; additional fees for any special requests.
Cryopreserved material may be available upon request, please inquire to mmrrc@ucdavis.edu for more information.

1 The distribution fee covers the expense of rederiving mice from a live mouse; 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 contains a sufficient number of embryos (in one or more vials or straws and based on the transfer success rate of the MMRRC facility) to transfer into one to three recipients. The MMRRC makes no guarantee concerning embryo transfer success experienced in the recipient investigator's laboratory. Neither gender nor genotype ratios are guaranteed.

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.
