An 8 bp, frame-shifting deletion in exon 1 of Zfp329 was generated using CRISPR/Cas. Cas9+ embryos were obtained by crossing C57Bl6/J-Cas9 expressing mice with C57Bl6/N mice and injected with target-specific gRNAs. Donor males were 87.5% C57Bl6/J and 12.5% C57Bl6/N at cryopreservation.

Strain Description

C57Bl6/J, Cas9 expressing mice were crossed to C57Bl6/N wildtype mice to generate Cas9+ embryos.  These embryos were injected with target-specific gRNAs and the resulting founders are in a mixed C57Bl6J/C57Bl6N background.  The cryopreserved strain contains a mix of C57Bl6/J and C57Bl6/N strains and is ~87% C57Bl6/J.
