SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.B6D2-Tg(Prrx1-Sox9,-lacZ)1Haak
Former Common namePrx1-Sox9 Tg, Prx1-Sox9 transgenic, B6-Prx1-Sox9/lacZ Tg
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Haruhiko Akiyama, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of (C57BL/6 x DBA/2)F1 fertilized eggs. The mutant mice were crossed to C57BL/6.
Strain descriptionPrx1-Sox9/lacZ transgenic mice in which Sox9 is specifically expressed in limb bud mesenchyme. Prx1-Sox9/lacZ transgene contains a 2.4 kb of the Prx1 limb specific promoter encoding the 3xHA-epitope tagged Sox9 cDNA followe by an IRES lacZ. Tg mice exhibit pre- and postaxial extra-digit formation. lacZ expression was detected in the limb buds from E9.5
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6NCrSlc]
