Strain Data Sheet


Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC01071
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.129P2-Rbpj<tm1Hon>/HonRbrc
Former Common nameFloxed RBP-J
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineE14 [129P2/OlaHsd]
Background strain
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Tasuku Honjo, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University. The construct was electoroporated into E14 ES cells derived from 129P2/OlaHsd. The mutant mice were crossed to C57BL/6.
Strain descriptionRbpj floxed mice. Rbpj, recombination signal binding protein for immunoglobulin kappa J region is a transcriptional factor of a Notch/RBP-J signaling pathway play a role in fate determination in various lineages. Exon 6 and 7 of Rbpj gene was flanked by loxP sites, and a neomycin resistance gene was inserted between exon 7 and the loxP site. Conditional RBP-J deficient mice can be generated by crossing with tissue-specific Cre mice.
Colony maintenanceHomozygote x Homozygote. Homozygous mice are viable and fertile.
