Former Common nameNZW.IL-5
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainNZW
Appearancealbino [b/b c/c p/p]
Strain developmentGenerated by Kiyoshi Takatsu, Kumamoto University Medical School. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of C3H fertilized eggs. C57BL/6 (RBRC01908) and BALB/c (RBRC05910) background (Developed by Institute of Medical Science, University of Tokyo), NZW background (RBRC01200) (Developed by Juntendo University School of Medicine).
Strain descriptionMt1-Il5 transgenic mice. These transgenic mice express mouse IL-5 under the control of the Mt1 promoter.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [or Crossing to NZW/NSlc] Tg mice show no obvious abnormality.
