Genotype Determination
  • Genotyping Protocol(s)
  • Center protocol and contact for technical support will be shipped with mice.
  • ES Cell Line
    Not specified
    The strain contains a floxed Basp1 allele, which is phenotypically indistinguishable from the wild-type. Mice carrying the recombined (knockout) allele are not viable.

    Strain Development
    The mutation was introduced with C57BL/6-derived ES cells; the exact identity is unknown. Per submission information, the line is on C57BL/6 background (substrain unclear). The selection cassette was removed either by breeding to an unspecified Flp deleter or by Frt self-excision.
    Suggested Control Mice
    • Cancer
