BRC No.RBRC04787
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.129P2(FVB)-Capn3<tm1.1Hiso>
Former Common nameB6-Capn3 KI/C129S
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineE14TG2a [129P2/OlaHsd]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Hiroyuki Sorimachi, The Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science Rinshoken in 2007. The missense C129S mutation and a loxP flanked neomycin resistant gene were introduced into exon 3 and intron 3 of the Capn3 gene, respectively. Floxed neo was removed by crossing with FVB/N-Tg(EIIa-cre)C5379Lmgd mice. The mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J at least 10 times.
