Tissue-specific knockout of Bsg exons 2-8 through cross of the floxed strain with B6.129P2-Lyz2tm1(cre)Ifo/J (RRID:IMSR_JAX:004781). A roxed neomycin-cassette in the Bsg allele was self-deleted in vitro.
BAC clones RP23-228L6 and RP23-94I18 were purchased from the BACPAC Resources Center (BPRC) of the Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI). Construction of a targeting vector was outsourced to Cyagen (conditional TurboKnockout(R)), which was electroporated into C57BL/6-derived ES cells (Cyagen, MUBES-01001) following drug selection (Rox'ed neomycin cassette was self-deleted), long-range PCR screening, and verification by Southern blot. Chimeras were bred to C57BL/6 and sib-mated to homozygosity (F3). Tissue-specific deletion was accomplished by crossing homozygotes with B6.129P2-Lyz2tm1(cre)Ifo/J (RRID:IMSR_JAX:004781) to produce males and females. Subsequent backcrossing to C57BL/6J until N10.

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

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.
