TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameFVB.129P2-Nf2<tm2Gth>
Former Common nameNf2flox2 (FVB)
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainFVB/NJcl
Appearancealbino [A/A B/B c/c D/D P/P]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Drs. Marco Giovannini and Gilles Thomas in INSERM at 1988. Strain of Origin: 129P2/OlaHsd-Hprt1<b-m3> via HM-1 ES cell line. FVB background.
Strain descriptionNf2, neurofibromatosis 2 is a tumor suppressor gene encoding a putative cytoskeletal associated protein. This conditional knockout mice have a loxP-flanked Nf2 allele. Conditional Nf2 deficient mice can be generated by crossing with tissue-specific Cre mice.
Colony maintenanceSibling Mating (Homozygote x Homozygote, Heterozygote)Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile.
