Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC06217
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6;129-Slc39a13<tm1Thir>
Former Common nameZIP13 KO, B6-Slc39a13 KO
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineR1 [(129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl<+>]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Toshiyuki Fukuda, RIKEN Center for Allergy and Immunology in 2008. R1 ES cells derived from (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl<+> were used for the generation of knockout mice. The mutant mice were crossed to C57BL/6J.
Strain descriptionZip13 (Slc39a13) gene knockout mice. Exons 6 through 8 were replaced with a neo cassette.
Colony maintenanceHeterozygote x Wild-type [C57BL/6JJcl]
