Strain Description: This strain is double homozygous for both the TgTn(sb-T2/Onc2)6070Njen (TG6070) Sleeping Beauty mutagenic transgene and a new cre-inducible SBase knock-in allele at ROSA26. This double homozygous strain has a genotype designation of lsl-SBase/lsl-SBase; SB/SB, where lsl-SBase refers to the cre-inducible SBase allele at ROSA26 and SB refers to the TG6070 transgene. Homozygosity for the cre-inducible SBase allele at ROSA26 was determined by PCR genotyping and homozygosity for the TG6070 transgene was determined by a combination of PCR and FISH genotyping; both alleles were confirmed homozygous by test crossing to wild-type mice. A major advantage of the bi-partite Sleeping Beauty mutagenesis system is the ability to selectively control transposase (SBase) expression both spatially and temporally. To create the cre-inducible SBase knock-in allele ROSA26, the same approach was taken as before (see NCI Mouse Repository Strain 01XBG), except that a floxed-STOP (loxP-STOP-loxP) cassette was inserted upstream of the SBase (SB11) gene, thereby preventing SBase expression. Tissue-specific SB expression may be controlled easily by crossing with various cre-expressing mice. Importantly, after deletion of the floxed-STOP cassestte by cre-loxP recombination, SB functions in the same manner as the constitutive SBase allele (NCI Mouse Repository Strain 01XBG). The Sleeping Beauty mutagenic transposon [TgTn(sb-T2/Onc2)6070Njen] is the same allele as described in NCI Mouse Repository Strain Number 01XBG. This double homozygous strain is part of the next generation Sleeping Beauty mutagenesis system developed in Nancy Jenkins' laboratory.

Additional Information
Cryopreservation Mating Scheme: The cryopreservation mating scheme is homozygous x homozygous. When maintained as a live colony, pairs were distributed as homozygotes. Average litter size is 6. Strain is maintained as homozygous and cannot be readily genotyped by PCR. It can, however, be genotyped by FISH analysis.
