Genetic informationR26-rtTA cassette (Rosa 26 locus): ubiquitous expression of rtTA. TRE-CPT1A-P2A-GFP cassette (Col1a1 locus): CPT1A and GFP coding sequence under the control of the TRE element. P2A allows the protein excision among CPT1A and GFP.
Phenotypic informationHomozygous:
Phenotypically undistinguishable from wild-type mice. No anatomical anomalies, physiological variations, behavioural abnormalities or food uptake alterations.

No phenotypic alterations. Mice present a CPT1A overexpression and enhanced fatty acid oxidation ubiquitous.
Breeding historyR26-rtTA: tetO-CPT1A mice (B6N;129Sv background) were backcrossed to C57BL/6J mice for at least 5 generations to generate this congenic strain.

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).
