  • Nomenclature
  • 10063
    C57BL/6-Gckrtm1.1 mrl
  • The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into TaconicArtemis C57BL/6NTac ES cell line.
  • Exon 1 contains the translation initiation codon.
  • Exons 4 to 8 have been flanked by loxP sites (size of loxP-flanked region: approx. 3 kb).
  • The conditional KO allele has been generated after Flp-mediated recombination 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.
  • The constitutive KO allele can be generated by Cre-mediated recombination. Deletion of exons 4 to 8 should result in loss of function of the Gckr gene by deleting the region containing the amino acids 96-215 and by generating a frameshift from exon 3 to exon 9.
  • According to NCBI and Ensembl databases, the Fndc4 gene (NCBI ID: 64339, Ensembl: ENSMUSG00000038552) is located approx. 3 kb upstream of Gckr exon 4 in a head-to-head orientation.
  • The corresponding constitutive KO allele is available as line 9896.
  • Datamining and Design performed in 2008.

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.
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.
