Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC05323
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain name129-Sirt1<tm1Mcby>
Former Common nameSTOCK Sirt1<tm1Mcby>
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineR1 [(129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl<+>]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Michael McBurney, Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre and Department of Medicine, University of Ottawa. A hygromycin resistance cassette was inserted to replace exons 5 and 6. 129 background.
Strain descriptionSirT1 knockout mice. A hygromycin resistance cassette was inserted to replace exons 5 and 6 of Sirt1 gene. Homozygous mutant mice die at birth. When outbred to CD1, SirT1 KO mice have short snouts, eyelid defect and are smaller than littermates at weaning.
Colony maintenanceHeterozygote X Wild-type
