Former Common name Atg5flox
H-2 Haplotype No Data
ES cell line CCE/EK.CCE [129S/SvEv-Gpi1]
Background strain C57BL/6
1 Appearance black
Genotype a/a B/B C/C
Strain development Developed by Kenji Nakamura, Mitsubishi Kagaku Institute of Life Sciences and Noboru Mizushima, Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science in 2003. The construct was electoroporated into CCE/EK.CCE ES cells derived from 129S/SvEv-Gpi1<c>. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J.
Strain description Atg5 floxed mice. Exon 3 of Atg5 gene was flanked by loxP sites containing neomycin resistant cassette. Autophagy is an intracellular degradation process by an autophagosome, which contains a portion of cytoplasm and subsequently degrades upon fusion with a lysosome. Autophagy is considered to be important for the cellular response to starvation and the normal turnover of cytoplasmic components as well. Atg5, autophagy-related 5 is essential for autophagosome formation. Conditional B6.129S-Atg5<tm1Myok> (RBRC02975) mice can be crossed with various tissue-specific Cre transgenic mice to study the role of autophagy in adult tissues. Null knockout mice are also available: B6;129-Atg5<tm1Nmz> (RBRC02231).
