Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC05879
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6;129P2-Kcnj11<tm1Sse>
Former Common nameKir6.2 KO, B6-Kcnj11 KO
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineE14 [129P2/OlaHsd]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Takashi Miki and Susumu Seino, Chiba University Graduate School of Medicine in 1998. E14 ES cells were used. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J over 5 generations.
Strain descriptionKcnj11 gene knockout mice. An exon of Kcnj11 gene was disrupted by neomycin resistance gene insertion. Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile, but show a somewhat low reproductive performance (nurturing) compared to wild-type.
Colony maintenanceHeterozygote, Homozygote x Homozygote [or Crossing to C57BL/6JJcl]
