Gene Affected Nfe2l2:nuclear factor, erythroid 2-like 2
Origin Zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs) method taregting exon 5 of Nrf2 (ACCACTGTCCCCAGCCCAgaggccACACTGACAGAGATGGAC) was used; This strain has a 7-bp deletion in Nrf2 gene. Background strain: F344/Stm
Strain characteristics Expression level of target gene of Nrf2 was decrerased by a deletion of Nrf2 transcription factor.
Breeding Conditions mating between heterozygous male and heterozygous female
