RBRC No. RBRC01968
Type Targeted MutationCartagena
Species Mus musculus
Strain name B6.129S4-Visfatin<tm1Yam>
Former Common name No Data
H-2 Haplotype No Data
ES cell line RF8 [129S4/SvJae]
Background strain C57BL/6JJcl
1 Appearance black
Genotype a/a B/B C/C
Strain development Developed by Dr. Shinya Yamanaka at Nara Institute of Science and Technology in 2001. The mutant mice were backcross to C57BL/6J.
Strain description Visfatin is produced by the visceral fat and whose expression level in plasma increases during the development of obesity. Visfatin exterted insulin-mimetic effects in cultured cells and lowered plasma glucose levels in mice. Homozygous mutant mice are embryonic lethal. Heterozygous mice show increased plasma glucose levels but normal insulin evels.
Colony maintenance Backcross to C57BL/6 (Heterozygote x C57BL/6JJcl)
