BRC No.RBRC06153
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.Cg-Tg(TOPGAL) Ctnnb1<Rgsc1880>
Former Common nameTOPGAL;Ctnnb1/C429S (B6), B6-TOPGAL Ctnnb1/C429S
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Strain developmentDeveloped by Takuya Murata and Yoichi Gondo, RIKEN BioResource center in 2012. C57BL/6J background.
Strain descriptionIns-TOPGAL and Ctnnb1 C429S mutant mice. Ctnnb1 C429S mutant mice were generated by ENU mutagenesis. C492S homozygous mutant mice are infertile. Ins-TOPGAL transgenic mice are useful for visualizing Wnt signal pathway. The transgene contains the nLacZ gene under the control of a TOPFLASH promoter (6x TCF binding motifs upstream of a TK promoter). The transgene construct was flanked by the insulator core elements.
Colony maintenanceTg: Carrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6JJcl]; Ctnnb1: Heterozygote x Wild-type [C57BL/6JJcl]
