Prmt2 - Model 7915 - KO

This line is cryopreserved and requires cryorecovery.

C57BL/6 Background

  • Nomenclature
  • 7915
    C57BL/6-Prmt2tm1.2 Mrl
  • The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into C57BL/6NTac ES cell line.
  • Prmt2 exon 2 contains the translation initiation codon.
  • Exon 5 has been flanked by loxP sites and contains the mutation residues 145-149 GCGTG to AAAAA.
  • 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 5 should result in loss of function of the Prmt2 by deleting part of the SAM_bd domain.
  • The remaining recombination sites are located in intron regions of the genome.
  • Data mining and Design performed in 2006.

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