K14MycER Mouse


Catalogue Number 151563
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets cMyc protooncogene (Myc) fused with estragen receptor (ER).
Disease Keywords Cancer; telogen effluvium (hair loss)
Relevance In vivo study of Myc activation in skin; in vivo study of skin cell proliferation & differentiation (sebocytes, epidermis)
Production Details A MycER transgenic vector, containing a c-Myc-2 cDNA fused to the hormone-binding domain of a mutant mouse estragen receptor under the control of the keratin 14 promoter, was injected into fertilised CBA/C57BL6 ooctyes. Founders were backcrossed to establish transgenic lines.
Conditional Yes
