Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC01772
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.129S2-Tmbim1<tm1Noj>/41
Former Common nameRECS1 KO
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineD3 [129S2/SvPas]
Background strainC57BL/6
Strain developmentDeveloped by Hanjun Zhao, Norikazu Yabuta and Hiroshi Nojima, Research Institute for Microbial Diseases, Osaka University in 2001. D3 ES cells were used to generate the knockout mice. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6 over 8 times.
Strain descriptionRECS1 (Tmbim1) gene knockout mice. The 5’-untranslated sequence (-3.8 kb) and exon 1-6 region of RECS1 was replaced by PGK-neo cassette. Homozygous mutant mice are prone to aortic dilation and cystic medial degeneration (CMD) when the mice ages (older than 14 months). Aortic dilation and CMD are frequently encountered. Viable and fertile.
Colony maintenanceHeterozygote x Homozygote [or Crossing to C57BL/6NCrSlc]
