BRC No.RBRC10663
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.Cg-Xcl1<tm1.2Ksho>
Former Common nameXCL1 KO
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineBruce 4 [B6.Cg-Thy1<a>]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Tsuneyasu Kaisho, Research Center for Allergy and Immunologuy, RIKEN around 2009.
Strain descriptionA chemokine, XCL1, is produced by NK cells or activated T cells and functions through a chemokine receptor, XCR1. XCR1 is expressed dominantly in a dendritic cell subset, conventional dendritic cell 1 (cDC1), which shows high ability to support cytotoxic T cell generation. In B6(Cg)-Xcl1tm1.2Ksho mice, the XCL1 gene is disrupted by the insertion of the neomycin resistance gene cassette and the mice carrying the homozygous mutant allele can be used as XCL1 KO mice.
