    C57BL/6-Tg(ELOVL4 mut)M69-80 Mrl
  • A plasmid containing the Human IRBP (Retinol Binding Protein 3) promoter, a Rabbit β-globin intron and the human mutant ELOVL4 cDNA harboring the AACTT deletion resulting in progressive photoreceptor degeneration has been engineered.
  • The plasmid construct was microinjected in C57BL6 mice by pronuclear injection.
  • Putative transgenic founders were identified by genotyping and bred for germ line transmission with C57BL6 mice.
  • Heterozygous transgenic mice were identified by genotyping.
  • Line 13781, C57BL/6-Tg(ELOVL4 mut)M69-123 Mrl, has 1 transgenic copy integrated and shows lowest expression level in ONL.
  • Line 13782, C57BL/6-Tg(ELOVL4 mut)M69-53 Mrl, has 2-3 transgenic copies integrated and shows intermediate expression level in ONL.
  • Line 13783, C57BL/6-Tg(ELOVL4 mut)M69-80 Mrl, has 6 transgenic copies integrated and shows highest expression level in ONL.
  • Data mining and Design performed in 2008.

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.
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 mutant for the selected mutation. In rare cases where the cryopreserved material also contains a recombinase gene, this may be reduced to 1-2 mutant 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.
