Background strain C57BL/6JJcl  
Appearance
 1 Appearance black  
Genotype a/a B/B C/C  
 2 Appearance black with white spot  
Genotype a/a B/B C/C Tg/+  
Strain development Developed by Dr. Takahiro Kunisada, Gifu University School of Medicine in 2004. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F1 fertilized eggs. Transgenic mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6.  
Strain description B6;D2-Tg(MT1-kit,VAL620ALA). Transgenic mouse expresses the Val 620 Ala mutated Kit gene. Mice carrying the transgene show white spots on one fourth of the body hair. This transgenic mice are useful for the study of Kit gene function.  
Colony maintenance Backcross to C57BL/6 (Hemizygote x C57BL/6JJcl)
Hemizygous mice show white spots on one fourth of the body hair.
Reproductive performance is good.
