SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6;129(Cg)-Capns1<tm1.1Otsu>
Former Common nameB6-Capns1 floxed
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineR1 [(129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl<+>]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Kinya Otsu, Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine in 2006. A loxP site was inserted upstream of exon 7 of Capns1 gene. A floxed neo cassette was inserted in downstream of exon 9. The PGK-neo cassette was removed by crossing with EIIa-cre mice. C57BL/6 and 129 mixed background.
Strain descriptionCapns1, calpain, small subunit 1 floxed mice. Exons 7-9 of Capns1 gene was flanked by loxP sites. Conditional Capns1 deficient mice can be generated by crossing with tissue-specific Cre mice. Homozygous mice for floxed allele show no obvious abnormality.
Colony maintenanceHomozygote x Homozygote [or Crossing to C57BL/6]
