Type Targeted MutationCartagena   wks
Species Mus musculus  
Strain name B6.129S2-Tmbim1<tm1Noj>/41  
Former Common name RECS1 KO  
H-2 Haplotype No Data  
ES cell line D3 [129S2/SvPas]  
Background strain C57BL/6  
 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. The mutant mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6 over 8 times.  
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]
