B6.FVB(129S4)-Insrtm1Khn Tg(Adipoq-cre)1Evdr

Mice homozygous for this IRlox allele are viable and fertile. These mutant mice have loxP sites flanking exon 4 of the targeted gene. When bred to Cre-recombinase expressing mice, offspring will have a deletion of exon 4 in the cre expressing tissue(s). These "floxed" mice may be useful in studying insulin receptor function in several different tissues (including pancreas, liver, and skeletal muscle), as well as diabetes and glucose regulation. Insr lox: Exon 4 was left flanked by single loxP sites after a downstream floxed neo cassette was removed via in vitro cre mediated recombination. Deletion of the resultant floxed fragment will result in a frameshift mutation that introduces a stop codon. Translation, if it were to occur, would putatively produce a truncated peptide consisting of 308 amino terminal residues and lacking the high affinity binding site, transmembrane domain, and kinase domain.
