B6SJLF1 Hybrid Mouse Model

  • Model #
  • Genotype
  • Nomenclature
  • B6SJL-F
  • B6SJL-M
  • Often used as source for pronuclear embryos for microinjection of transgenes
  • Has genetic and phenotypic uniformity


The B6SJLF1 hybrid model is developed by intercrossing C57BL/6NTac female mice to SJL/JCrNTac male mice from Taconic US's commercial colonies.


For genetic comparisons and pertinent data, refer to “Genetics” for the parent strains of this hybrid. The B6SJLF1 will be heterozygous at the loci where the C57BL/6 and the SJL differ, and homozygous at the loci where they are the same.
