Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC01852
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.CS-Ngu1053
Former Common name
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Strain developmentDeveloped by Shigeru Tomida and Shizufumi Ebihara, Graduate School of Bioagricultural Sciences, Nagoya University. This congenic strain was produced by eight backcrossing of the region between 4/4-7 marker to D5Mit259 of CS onto the C57BL/6J.
Strain descriptionThis strain carries CS strain specific behavior (negligible immobility in inescapable situations) related loci from Chr 5 of CS backcrossed to C57BL/6.
