FH1 KO Mouse

Info

Catalogue Number 151657
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Fumarate Hydratase 1
Disease Keywords Renal cyst, HLRCC
Relevance Germline mutations in the fumarate hydratase tumour suppressor gene predispose to leiomyomatosis, renal cysts, and renal cell cancer (HLRCC). Fh1-deficient mice develop renal cysts that have an activated hypoxia pathway, with overexpression of Hif1alpha and Hif2alpha. Hif targets, such as Glut1 and Vegf were also upregulated. Therefore the mouse may be useful for testing therapeutic interventions that target angiogenesis and HIF-prolyl hydroxylation.
Production Details Following generation of the targeting construct, linearization, and electroporation into 129Sv/J ES cells, stable integrants were selected in 0.2 mg/ml Geneticin G418 medium. Homologous recombinants were identified initially by PCR and subsequently by Southern blot analysis. Targeted ES cells were injected into C57/BL6 blastocysts. ES cell clones were screened for 50 and 30 site-specific genomic integration of the targeting construct using a PCR-based assay and LATaq (Takara). PCR genotypes to assay Flp- and Cre-mediated recombination, and genotyping of eFlp and Cre expression mice were carriedout using standard conditions. For the genotyping of Fh1 to distinguish between wild-type, null, and floxed alleles, a common forward primer (50-GCTCAGTCACCCATCCAAAT-30 ) and differential reverse primers (50-ACCCTGCTAGGTGTCACCAC-30 and 50-CCTGGCACTGCAGACTACAA-30 ) were used
Conditional Yes
Conditional Description LoxP flanking exons 2 and 3 of Fh1
Growth/Phenotype Keywords Fh1-/- mice died in early embryogenesis Fh1 fl/fl with Ksp1.3/Cre are healthy until ~8 months when polyuric renal failure occurs. Postmortem shows macroscopic renal cysts.
