Order Form for Cryoarchived Strains  
Strain Number: 01ST2 
Common Strain Name: Rb1 null 
Strain Nomenclature: B6.129S2(Cg)-Rb1tm1Tyj/Nci 
Release Category (Required for MTA form): B3 , D
Sample MTA for this strain
Strain Description: Mice homozygous for the Rb1tm1Tyj targeted mutation die in utero, apparently from a failure to efficiently produce erythrocytes in the liver. Heterozygous mice develop intermediate lobe pituitary tumors beginning at 8 months of age; C cell tumors of the thyroid are also common in this strain. Retinal tumors, which develop in RB(+/-) humans, have not been observed in this strain.
