    C57BL/6-Brd2tm1.1Mrl
  • The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into TaconicArtemis C57BL/6NTac ES cell line.
  • Exon 2 contains the translation initiation codon.
  • Exons 3 and 4 have been flanked by loxP sites (size of loxP-flanked region: 1.5 kb).
  • The positive selection marker (Puromycin resistance - PuroR) has been flanked by FRT sites and inserted into intron 2.
  • The conditional KO line has been derived using C57BL/6NTac animals and the Flp-transgene was removed by segregation.
  • The constitutive KO allele can be generated by Cre-mediated recombination.
  • Deletion of exons 3 and 4 should result in the loss of function of the Brd2 gene by deleting most of the Bromo1 domain and by generating a frameshift from exon 2 to exons 5-10 (premature Stop codon in exon 5).
  • The remaining recombination sites will be located in non-conserved regions of the genome.
  • Datamining and Design performed 2013.

GEM Collection models exist as cryopreserved materials. Models can typically be recovered and delivered to customers within 14-16 weeks after order receipt. Customers will receive:

  • A minimum of four (4) mice heterozygous for the selected mutation. In rare cases where the cryopreserved material also contains a recombinase gene, this may be reduced to 1-2 heterozygous mice.
  • Validated genotyping protocols
  • Animal health report. Mice will meet Taconic's Murine Pathogen Free™ (MPF™) health standard.

Please note that in rare instances (2%) cryorecovery may prove to be difficult, either extending timeline or ultimately successful recovery.
Customers may purchase this model by signing the appropriate Terms of Sale (below) and providing a PO. The GEM Collection Commercial and Academic Terms of Sale grant perpetual use rights.
