Conditional DUXC knockout mouse model
A conditional DUXC knockout mouse model for use as a basic research tool.
- Basic research tool
Organism: Mus musculus, mouse
Product format: Live animals
Description: The Double homeobox (Dux) gene is a repeated gene array in humans and mice. In a C57BL/6 mouse background, this array was replaced with a single copy of the repeat containing the DUXC gene flanked by loxP sites at both ends. This created a conditional allele that can be deleted with Cre expression. Briefly, mouse Dux is not essential for viability or fertilization nor for zygotic genome activation, however the knockout embryos exhibit post-implantation development failures.
Phase of DevelopmentTRL: 7-8
Conditional DUXC knockout mice have been generated, characterized, and published.
