    C57BL/6-Rock2tm1.1(K121A)Mrl
  • The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into TaconicArtemis C57BL/6NTac ES cell line.
  • Rock2 Exon 1 contains the translation initiation codon.
  • The K121A point mutation has been introduced into Rock2 exon 4.
  • The positive selection marker (Puromycin resistance - PuroR) has been flanked by FRT sites and inserted into intron 3.
  • The constitutive PM allele has been generated after Flp-mediated recombination by crossing chimeras to a Flp-Deleter on a C57BL/6 background.
  • The constitutive PM line has been derived using C57BL/6NTac animals and the Flp-transgene was removed by segregation.
  • The remaining recombination site will be located in a non-conserved region of the genome.
  • Datamining and Design performed in 2012.

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.
