Strain nameB6.Cg-Tg(Mt1-RET)242Ina Hr<hr>
Former Common nameHL-RET-mice (242line)
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Masashi Kato, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine. Generated by crossing of RET mice and Hr mice (Hos:HRM). The mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6 over 10 times.
Strain descriptionMt1-Ret 242 mice with hairless mutant. The mice express the human RET under the control of the mouse MT1 promoter/enhancer. Mt1-RET homozygous mutant mice are embryonic lethal.
Colony maintenanceTg: Carrier x Noncarrier; hr: Homozygote x Homozygote
