  • Useful in the study of asthma, colitis, arthritis and immune response polarization

Genetic Background:



The Ccr2 Knockout mouse was developed by William A. Kuziel in the laboratory of Nobuya Maeda at the University of North Carolina. The model was created by targeting the Ccr2 gene in E14TG2a embryonic stem cells derived from 129P2/Ola mice and injecting the targeted cells into C57BL/6 blastocysts. Resultant chimeras were backcrossed to C57BL/6N for ten generations (N10). Taconic received stock in December 2004. The mice were derived by embryo transfer. The colony was maintained by incrossing homozygous mice.
