Additional Information
Cryopreservation Mating Scheme: The cryopreservation mating scheme is C57BL/6 females x heterozygous males. When maintained as a live colony, breeder pairs were distributed as a heterozygote male x wildtype C57BL/6 female. Per Dr. Charles Keller, the Donating Investigator, "CreER must ALWAYS come from the sire only to prevent somatic mosaicism; experimentals are NEVER homozygous". Average litter size is 5-8.
Genotyping Information: Protocol 1: Allele: Pax7<tm1(cre/Esr1*)Cklr>
Donating Investigator: Dr. Charles Keller
