    B6129SF1/Tac
  • Used primarily as a control for studies involving the use of targeted mutation mice on a mixed background originating from 129 ES cell based chimeras that were subsequently mated to C57BL/6 mice
  • Not genetically identical to these mixed background targeted mutation models, instead they approximate, in a consistent manner, the genetic mix that may be present in such models.

Origin:

The B6129F1 hybrid model is developed by intercrossing C57BL/6NTac female mice to 129S6/SvEvTac male mice from Taconic US's commercial colonies.


Genetics:

For genetic comparisons and pertinent data, refer to "Genetics" for the parent strains of this hybrid. The B6129F1 will be heterozygous at the loci where the C57BL/6 and the 129/SvEv differ, and homozygous at the loci where they are the same.


Color:

White-Bellied Agouti

Species:

Mouse
