Available Strain Details

Strain Information
Common Strain Name: Pdx-1-cre Pricing and Ordering Information
Strain Nomenclature: B6.FVB-Tg(Pdx1-cre)6Tuv/Nci
Animal State: Cryoarchived Strains
Release Category (Required for MTA form): B2,D


Strain Description: Pdx-1-Cre mice exhibit a stochastic pattern of high-level Cre expression in the pancreas (Hingorani et al., 2003). When combined with Tyler Jacks' latent activatable K-ras allele, LSL-KrasG12D (Kras2, NCI Mouse Repository strain code 01XJ6), Pdx-1-Cre causes ductal lesions that recapitulate the full spectrum of human pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasias (PanINs). Some of these lesions progress to invasive and metastatic adenocarcinomas.

Additional Information
Cryopreservation Mating Scheme: The cryopreservation mating scheme is C57BL/6 females x hemizygous males. When maintained as a live colony, breeder pairs were distributed as a hemizygote (male or female) x wildtype C57BL/6 (male or female). Average litter size is 7.
