Strain Information
Common Strain Name: LSL-p53 R172H (C57BL/6) Pricing and Ordering Information
Strain Nomenclature: B6.129S4-Trp53tm2Tyj/Nci
Animal State: Cryoarchived Strains
Release Category (Required for MTA form): B3


Strain Description: These mice contain a point-mutant allele of Trp53 that can be activated by Cre-mediated recombination. The conditional allele, containing LoxP sites and a transcriptional/translational STOP sequence, is functionally equivalent to a null mutation. This strain was backcrossed to C57BL/6J more than 20 times.
