Strain Description: This allele is a knock-in of an inducible Cre recombinase into the Nkx3.1 locus (and is a null allele), and can be used for inducible gene targeting in the prostate epithelium.
Mutation Information  
  Mutation Type: Targeted 
  Gene Name: NK-3 transcription factor, locus 1 (Drosophilia)
  Gene Symbol: Nkx3-1
  Transgene Name:
  Transgene Symbol:
  Promoter Name:  
  Promoter Symbol:  
  Current Genetic Background: B6;129S 
  Approx. Generation:
  Organ Site : Prostate 
Husbandry: Breeder pairs are supplied as homozygotes. Homozygous males should be bred at a young age (within the first 4-5 months). Occasionally, if not bred early on, they do not mate; some homozygous males never breed. If there is a breeding cage that has not had pups for 2 months, the male should be removed and a new one put in. Once they start breeding they do fine. Average litter size is 6-8.
Genotyping Information: Protocol 1: Allele: Nkx3-1  
Donating Investigator: Dr. Michael  Shen
