TypeTargeted Mutation CongenicCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.Cg-Ahnak<tm1Jtak>
Former Common nameAhnak-KO, Ahnak<tm1Tak>
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineR1 [(129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl<+>]
Background strain
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Junji Takeda at Osaka University in 2001.
Strain descriptionAHNAK/Desmoyokin is a ubiquitous protein expressed in a variety of cell type, distributes mainly on the cell membranes, suggesting that this gene plays a role in cell-cell adhesion. Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile, and show no overt abnormalities.
Colony maintenanceBackcross to C57BL/6J
