    C57BL/6-Cyp8b1tm1.1Mrl
  • The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into TaconicArtemis C57BL/6N Tac ES cell line.
  • Cyp8b1 exon 1 contains the complete open reading frame (ORF).
  • Exon 1 and 1.9 kb of sequence upstream of exon 1 (promoter region) have been flanked by loxP sites (size of loxP-flanked region:4.1 kb).
  • The conditional KO allele has been obtained after Flp-mediated removal of the selection marker by crossing chimeras to a Flp-Deleter on a C57BL/6 background.
  • The conditional KO line has been derived using C57BL/6NTac animals and the Flp-transgene was removed by segregation.
  • Deletion of exon 1 and the proximal promoter should result in loss of function of the Cyp8b1 gene by removing the complete gene.
  • The remaining recombination sites are located in non-conserved regions of the genome.
  • The corresponding constitutive KO allele is available as line 11784.
  • Datamining and Design performed in 2011.

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.
