Former Common nameOct4ΔPE-Kikume#2, B6;B6D2-Tg(Oct4deltaPE-KikumeGR)2Rbrc
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Kuniya Abe, RIKEN BioResrouce Center in 2007. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F1 fertilized eggs. The mutant mice were crossed to C57BL/6 (semicongenic).
Strain descriptionOct-4(Pou5f1)/KikumeGR transgenic mice carrying KikumeGR cDNA under the control of the 18kb Oct-4 genomic fragment (Genomic Oct-4 Fragment of 18) by deletion in the proximal enhancer (PE). The Oct-4 gene expresses in primordial germ cells and undifferentiated spermatogonia in new born mice.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6JJcl]
