Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:188586
Parent Cell Line:  F1H4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129S6/SvEvTac x C57BL/6NTac)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intergenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe evolutionarily conserved candidate enhancer element (ECR5) that acts as a distal enhancer to Sost was replaced with a floxed neo cassette. Cre-mediated recombination removed the neo cassette. Immunohistochemistry confirmed highly variable expression of Sost. (J:188586)
Rr20tm1.1Vlcg/Rr20tm1.1Vlcg mice have HBM due to reduced number of Sost-expressing osteocytes
