Former Common namemt-KITV620A Tg-4 BDF1 x B6
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Appearanceblack with large white spot [a/a B/B C/C Tg/+]
black [a/a B/B C/C +/+]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Takahiro Kunisada at Gifu University school of medicine in 2004. The mouse Val 620 Ala mutated Kit gene was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F1 fertilized eggs. The transgenic mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6.
Strain descriptionThese transgenic mice express the Val 620 Ala mutated Kit gene. Mice carrying the transgene show white spots on 70-90% of the body hair. This strain is useful for the study of Kit gene function.
Colony maintenanceBackcross to C57BL/6J (Hemizygote x C57BL/6JJcl)Mice carrying the transgene show white spots on 70-90% of the body hair.
