BRC No.RBRC09911
TypeCRISPR/Cas9 (Transgene)Cartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC57BL/6N-Sik3<em2Iiis>
Former Common nameSik3<Flag>
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6NJcl
Strain developmentWe induced random point mutations by ethylnitrosourea (ENU) and screened for dominant sleep and wakefulness abnormalities. Through our screening, we established a mutant pedigree, which we termed Sleepy (Slp), with a markedly prolonged sleep time. Whole-exome sequencing identified a heterozygous single nucleotide substitution at the splice donor site for intron 13 of the Sik3 gene. Further examine this function, we created the mice in which a Flag-tag was inserted into the N terminus of SIK3 (wildtype) using CRISPR/Cas9 technology.
