SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.B6CB(FVB)-Capn8<tm2.1Hiso>
Former Common name
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineTT2 [(C57BL/6NCrlj x CBA/JNCrlj)F1]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Drs. Shoji Hata and Hiroyuki Sorimachi, The Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science Rinshoken in 2007. Exon 3 of the Capn8 gene was replaced with the missense C105S mutation with a loxP flanked neomycin resistant gene. Floxed neo was removed by crossing with FVB/N-Tg(EIIa-cre)C5379Lmgd mice. The mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J at least 11 times.
