 1 Appearance black  
Genotype No Data  
Strain development Developed by Takeshi Itoh and Shigeyoshi Itohara, Institute for Virus Research, Kyoto University in 1997. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6.  
Strain description This strain was generated by gene targeting of gelatinase A (Mmp2, metalloproteinase 2). Homozygous mutant mice are completely devoid of gelatinase A. 5.9 kb of the gene including exon 1 was replaced with a PGK-neo cassette. Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile, but show a subtle delay in their growth.  
Colony maintenance Homozygote x Heterozygote [or Crossing to C57BL/6JJcl]. Homozygous mutant mice are viable and fertile, but show a subtle delay in their growth.
