MEF2BD83V Mouse

Info

Catalogue Number 154096

Model Knock-In
Relevance Diffuse large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) and Follicular Lymphoma (FL) are the two most common forms of mature B cell lymphoid neoplams, accounting for over 50% of all diagnoses. Mutant MEF2B (MEF2BD83V) is the most common lymphoma associated oncogene. MEF2BD83V expression in mice leads to GC enlargement and lymphoma development, a phenotype that becomes fully penetrant in combination with BCL2 de-regulation, an event associated with human MEF2B mutations. Expression of the mutant MEF2BD38V allele was induced in germinal centre- derived B cells by crossing with Cγ1-Cre mice.
Production Details The conditional Mef2bstopD83V allele was generated by introducing a single nucleotide change by site directed mutagenesis leading to the D83V amino-acid change in exon 3. The neomycin-resistance marker followed by a triple-polyA, flanked by two loxP sites was introduced upstream the exon 3 carrying the D83V mutation. Correctly targeted mouse ES cells were injected into blastocysts derived from C57BL/6 mice to generate chimeras.
Conditional Description Conditional Knockin mice that express mutant MEF2BD38V upon recombination by Cre-recombinase
Strain C57BL/6
Mouse Genetic Background/Cross History 129/Sv-C57Bl/6 mixed
Zygosity Homozygous
