Former Common name RECS1 KO
H-2 Haplotype No Data
ES cell line D3 [129S2/SvPas]
Background strain No Data
1 Appearance No Data
Genotype No Data
Strain development Developed 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.
Strain description RECS1 (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 maintenance Heterozygote x Homozygote [or Crossing to C57BL/6NCrSlc]
