Strain Data Sheet


Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC04109
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.129S6-Calca<tm1Hku>
Former Common namealphaCGRP-
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineSM1[129S6/SvEvTac]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Hiroki Kurihara, Graduate School of Medicine, University of Tokyo in 2001.
Strain descriptionThe alpha-Calcitonin gene-related peptide (alphaCGRP) sequence was disrupted by replacement of exon 5 with a PGK-neo cassette leaving the calcitonin (CT) sequence uninterrupted. RT-PCR analysis confirmed the absence of alphaCGRP expression in mutant mice while CT expression appears unaffected. Immunohistochemical analysis did not detect alphaCGRP protein in the spinal cords of mutant animals, but thyroid gland samples stain positive for CT. The elevated mean arterial pressure (MAP) and decreased heart rate (HR) variability.
Colony maintenanceThe elevated mean arterial pressure (MAP) and decreased heart rate (HR) variability.
