Strain Data Sheet


Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC09731
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameICR.Cg-Braf<tm1.1Tumg>
Former Common nameBraf Q241R/+ ICR (Braf Q241R knock-in mice; ICR background)
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineBruce 4 [B6.Cg-Thy1<a>]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Yoko Aoki and Shin-ichi Inoue, Tohoku University School of Medicine in 2014. BRUCE-4 ES cells were used. RBRC09730 was crossed with CAG-Cre and then backcrossed to ICR for 11 generations.
Strain descriptionBraf-mutated protein (BrafQ241R) knock-in mice in ICR genetic background. Q241R mutation in mouse Braf corresponds to Q257R in human BRAF, the most frequent mutation in the cardio-facio-cutaneous (CFC) syndrome. Conditional BrafQ241R knock-in mice are available as RBRC09730.
