Information from provider

ProviderOle Kiehn
Provider affiliationNeuroscience, Karolinska Institutet
Genetic informationA construct containing Hoxb8 upstream sequences, a FlipO recombinase cassette, and a bovine poly(A) sequence inserted in-frame downstream of the Hoxb8 ATG site. Fertilized early-stage C57BL/6J oocytes were injected with the linearized construct, and two founders were obtained and mated to generate transgenic lines. One of them, F11, exhibited the expected expression pattern of Hoxb8 at P0.
Phenotypic informationHomozygous:
Not known, not tested.

No change in phenotype. Heterozygous mice behave like wild-type mice.
Breeding historyStrain has been kept C57BL/6. The strain has always been kept heterozygous and mostly back-crossed with wild-type siblings.
ReferencesNone available
Homozygous fertilenot known

Requesting frozen sperm or embryos is generally advisable wherever possible, in order to minimise the shipment of live mice.

  • Frozen sperm. Delivered in 4 weeks (after paperwork in place). €1740*
  • Rederivation of mice from frozen stock, delivery time available upon request . €3880*

Due to the dynamic nature of our processes strain availability may change at short notice. The local repository manager will advise you in these circumstances.

* In addition users have to cover all the shipping costs (including the cost for returning dry-shippers, where applicable).
