TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC3.129P2-Ambp<tm1Kkm>
Former Common nameBikunin knockout mouse, UTI knockout mice, ITILC knockout mouse
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineE14 [129P2/OlaHsd]
Background strainC3H/HeSlc
Strain developmentDeveloped by Lisheng Zhuo and Koji Kimata, Aichi Medical University in 2000. E14 ES cell was used. C3He congenic line. Other congenic lines in C57BL/6NCrSlc (RBRC09742), DBA1/JJms (RBRC09744) or BALB/cCrSlc (RBRC09745) are also available.
Strain descriptionAmbp (alpha 1 microglobulin/bikunin)knockout mice. A neo cassette replaced exons coding the Bikunin protein, but unchanged exons coding the alpha 1 microglobulin protein. Homozygous females are infertile.
