Order Form for Cryoarchived Strains  
Strain Number: 01XF2 
Common Strain Name: Nf1 null (129) 
Strain Nomenclature: 129-Nf1tm1Fcr/Nci 
Release Category (Required for MTA form): B1
Sample MTA for this strain
Strain Description: Nf1-/- embryos die between E11-E13.5 with heart defects and hyperplasia of the superior ganglia. Heterozygotes have an increased predisposition to pheochromocytoma and myeloid leukemia between 18 and 28 months of age. Heterozygotes also exhibit features of the learning deficits associated with NF1 patients, which has been shown to be associated with overactive Ras function (Costa RM 2001. Nature).
