    C57BL/6-Lpin3tm1.2 mrl
  • The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into TaconicArtemis C57BL/6NTac ES cell line.
  • Exon 2 contains the translation initiation codon.
  • Exons 4 to 7 have been flanked by loxP sites (size of loxP-flanked region: 2.9 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 4 to 7 should result in loss of function of the Lpin3 gene by deleting the C-terminal part of the Lipin domain and the potential nuclear localization signal and by generating a frameshift from exon 3 to exons 8-11 (premature Stop codon in exon 8).
  • The remaining recombination sites are located in non-conserved regions of the genome.
  • According to NCBI and Ensembl databases, there are two genes in the neighborhood of the Lpin3 gene:

    • The Zhx3 gene (Entrez ID: 320799; ENSMUSG00000035877) is located approx. 22 kb upstream of Lpin3 exon 4 in a head-to-head orientation.
    • The Emilin3 gene (Entrez ID: 280635; ENSMUSG00000050700) is located approx. 9 kb downstream of Lpin3 exon 7 in a tail-to-tail orientation.

  • The corresponding conditional KO allele is available as line 10584.
  • 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.
