BRC No.RBRC09657
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.Cg-Clec4a4<tm1.1Ksat>
Former Common nameClec4a4-/- mice
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineBruce 4 [B6.Cg-Thy1<a>]
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Strain developmentDeveloped by Katsuaki Sato, RIKEN Research Center for Allergy and Immunology in 2016. Bruce 4 ES cells derived from B6.Cg-Thy1<a> were used. Mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J for 9 generations.
Strain descriptionClec4A4 (DCIR2) knockout mice. IRES-EGFP cassette was replaced with exon 1 and exon 2 of the Clec4A4 gene. No GFP expression was detected in the mice.
Colony maintenanceHomozygote x Homozygote [or Crossing to C57BL/6JJcl]
