Mouse Strain information
APB ID 7345
Added 28/05/2013
Last Edited 09/06/2014
Strain nomenclature: B6.129P2-Ptentm2Mak Tg(MMTV-Cre)4Mam/Apb
Nickname: PTEN lox P locus/MMTV CRE
Strain Types Mutant strain
Genetic Details Transgenic: CRE
Targeted floxed
Mode of Inheritance Dominant
1.  Affected Gene Name: phosphatase and tensin homolog  
Chromosome 19
Affected Gene Symbol Pten
Genetic alteration of gene: One loxP site was inserted in intron 3 and a floxed hygromycin selection cassette was inserted in intron 5. The hygromycin selection cassette was removed in ES cells by transient Cre expression, leaving exons 4 and 5 flanked by loxP sites in the final allele.
Location on chromosome (bp): 32757497-32826160 bp, + strand From VEGA annotation of GRCm38
