  • Nomenclature
  • 10815
    C57BL/6-Lpcat4tm1.2 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 2 to 7 have been flanked by loxP sites (size of loxP-flanked region: 2.7 kb).
  • 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 derived using C57BL/6NTac animals and the Cre-transgene was removed by segregation.
  • Deletion of exons 2 to 7 should result in loss of function of the Lpcat4 gene by deleting both transmembrane domains and part of the catalytic domain and by generating a frameshift from exon 1 to exon 8 (premature Stop codon in exon 9).
  • The remaining recombination sites are located in non-conserved regions of the genome.
  • According to NCBI and Ensembl databases, the Nut gene (Entrez ID: 213765; ENSMUSG00000041358) is located approx. 4.5 kb downstream of Lpcat4 exon 7 in a tail-to-tail orientation.
  • The corresponding conditional KO allele is available as line 10799.
  • Datamining and Design performed in 2009.

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.
