Available Strain Details

Order Form for Cryoarchived Strains  
Strain Number: 01XA9 
Common Strain Name: MMTV-Cre, Line F 
Strain Nomenclature: B6.Cg-Tg(MMTV-Cre)FMam/Nci 
Release Category (Required for MTA form): C1 , D
Sample MTA for this strain
Strain Description: Widespread Cre expression including the female germline. High levels of recombination in the virgin and lactating mammary gland, salivary gland, seminal vesicle, skin and cells of the immune system. Little expression in the lung, kidney, liver and brain. Females from this line display impaired mammary development and are unable to nurse successfully, so if used in the colony pups must be fostered. Refer to PMID 21255551 for details.
