**ALERT regarding wild type JM8A3, JM8A3.N1 or JM8A1.N3 parental cells:
The KOMP Project has recently identified the presence of a translocation of the manipulated agouti allele on chromosome 8 of ES cell line JM8A3, and potentially affecting the sub-lines JM8A3.N1 and JM8A1.N3, that were all derived at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. At this time, we recommended not to use these cells for targeting genes on chromosome 8. Other lines, including, the JM8, JM8.N4, or JM8.F6, do not exhibit this translocation and can be safely and reliably used for gene targeting experiments. If you are using mouse lines (e.g., KOMP targeted lines) derived from JM8A3, JM8A3.N1 or JM8A1.N3 ES cell lines, we recommend crossing to C57BL/6N wild type mice in order to breed out the agouti coat color. For further information or assistance please contact Allan Bradley at The Sanger Institute email@example.com.
Distribution of this strain requires submission of the KOMP MTA. The MTA should be signed by an authorized official from your institution, generally this is someone in your Technology Transfer or Intellectual Property offices. A link to this form will be provided via email when an order is submitted; the PDF form should be downloaded or the email forwarded to the appropriate institutional representative for completion following directions in the document.
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.

Some MMRRC strains were submitted by the donor as cryopreserved germplasm, and because these strains were not cryopreserved by the MMRRC, we have not assessed the quality of this material. We have extensive experience with recovery of mice from cryopreserved sperm and embryos of varying quality, including using techniques such as IVF and ICSI, and are confident that we will have success in most, if not all, cases. However, because of the unknown quality of these frozen samples, we will restrict recovery efforts to two attempts for each order. Subsequent attempts can be performed on a fee-for-service basis, in addition to the standard fees, upon request.
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.
