Strain nameICR.Cg-Tg(Mt1-RET)242Ina
Former Common nameICR-RET#242, ICR-Mt1-RET Tg#242
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Masashi Kato, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine. The Mt1-RET transgene was injected into the fertilized eggs of (BALB/c x C57BL/6) x BALB/c mice. ICR mixed background.
Strain descriptionMt1-Ret 242 transgenic mice. The mice express the human RET under the control of the mouse MT1 promoter/enhancer. Mt1-RET homozygous mutant mice are embryonic lethal.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [or Crossing to Slc:ICR]
