  • The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into 129Sv/Pas ES cell line.
  • Il13ra1 exon 1 contains the translation initiation codon.
  • Exon 3 has been flanked by loxP sites.
  • The constitutive KO allele has been generated after Cre-mediated recombination by crossing chimeras to a Cre-Deleter on a C57BL/6 background.
  • The constitutive KO line has been subsequently backcrossed to C57BL/6NTac animals for at least 2 generations and the Cre-transgene was removed by segregation.
  • Deletion of exon 3 should result in loss of function of the Il13ra1 gene by generating a frame shift (premature stop codon in exon 4).
  • The remaining recombination sites are located in intron regions of the genome.
  • The constitutive KO line is also available in a congenic C57BL/6 genetic background, line 8031.
  • Datamining and Design performed in 2005.

The KO Repository lines exist as cryopreserved materials. Cohorts can typically be produced and delivered to the customer within 14-16 weeks of order receipt. For most lines, the mouse ES cells used in generating the model are of the 129S5 strain. Lines are stored primarily as cryopreserved sperm on a mixed 129S5 x C57BL/6J-Tyrc-Brd background. Lines are recovered using cryopreserved sperm and C57BL/6NTac oocyte donors. Some lines are stored as cryopreserved embryos and when revitalized will result in a 129/S5 x C57BL/6J-Tyrc-Brd background.

For standard orders clients will receive:

  • A minimum of four (4) mutant mice, heterozygous for the selected mutation on a mixed 129S5;B6 background.
  • Validated genotyping protocols
  • Animal health data
