Information from provider

ProviderHelgi Schiöth
Provider affiliationDepartment of Surgical Sciences, Functional Pharmacology and Neuroscience, Uppsala University
Genetic informationLoxP sites have been inserted around exon 5 of the Hmgcr gene by CRISPR/Cas9 mediated genome engineering. CRISPR technology details: Cas9 protein (from New England Biolabs) and gRNA were co-injected into fertilized eggs, therefore Cas9 did not integrate in the mouse genome.
Phenotypic informationHomozygous:
The mice have no pathological phenotype, since the mutation is conditional.

The mice have no pathological phenotype, since the mutation is conditional.
Breeding historyHeterozygous founders were bred with C57BL/6NTac wild-type mice to increase the colony. After this, the heterozygous mice were bred to homozigosity and inbred for 4 generations before conservation.

Requesting frozen sperm or embryos is generally advisable wherever possible, in order to minimise the shipment of live mice.

  • Frozen sperm. Delivered in 4 weeks (after paperwork in place). €1740*
  • Rederivation of mice from frozen stock, delivery time available upon request . €3880*

Due to the dynamic nature of our processes strain availability may change at short notice. The local repository manager will advise you in these circumstances.

* In addition users have to cover all the shipping costs (including the cost for returning dry-shippers, where applicable), as well as a CRISPR surcharge.
