Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC02092
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6;129P2-Omp<tm3Mom>/MomTyagRbrc
Former Common nameOMP-GFP
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineE14 [129P2/OlaHsd]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Peter Mombaerts, The Rockefeller University in 2001.
Strain descriptionOMP (olfactory marker protein) gene GFP knock-in mice. The GFP/LTNL cassette was inserted into the Omp gene. Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile.
