Additional Information
Cryopreservation Mating Scheme: The cryopreservation mating scheme is C57BL/6 females x heterozygous males. When maintained as a live colony, breeder pairs were distributed as a heterozygote (male or female) x wildtype C57BL/6 (male or female). The strain is maintained heterozygously on a B6 background.
