Available Strain Details

Strain Information
Common Strain Name: HPV16-E6 Pricing and Ordering Information
Strain Nomenclature: FVB-Tg(KRT14-HPV16E6)5737Plam/Nci
Animal State: Frozen Embryo
Release Category (Required for MTA form): B1

Strain Description: This strain carries 15 copies of the K14-HPV16 E6 transgene. Hemizygous animals develop epithelial hyperplasia (wrinkled skin visible at 12 days of age), skin tumors, and cervical tumors (when crossed to K14E7 mice treated with estrogen). Skin tumors arise late in 14% of the mice (at 15 months of age, first onset at 6 months). Lesions are malignant, grade I-III epidermoid carcinomas. Cataracts are also apparent by weaning.
