Available Strain Details

Strain Information
Common Strain Name: LPV-TAg, T121, LST1137, dl1137 Pricing and Ordering Information
Strain Nomenclature: B6;D2-Tg(LPV-TAg121)2Tvd/Nci
Animal State: Cryoarchived Strains
Release Category (Required for MTA form): B1,D


Strain Description: This strain carries only the first 121 amino acids of SV40 Large T antigen, thus the common name of T121. T121 induces abnormal proliferation and apoptosis when expressed in the brain choroid plexus epithelium of transgenic mice, causing slow-growing tumors. From 80 to 90 percent of the apoptosis is dependent of p53. Mice develop a hunched and scruffy appearance with malformed skull before death occurs.
