Information from provider

Provider Cure CLCN4
Provider affiliationCure CLCN4
Genetic informationThe Clcn4 KO rat model was generated using a 2 pairs of guide RNA CRISPR/Cas9 approach to deleted exon 4 (ENSRNOE00000033426.1), a critical exon. The deletion of exon 4 leads to a frame shift and a premature STOP codon The sequences of the four guide RNAs are the following: TGCTGCATGAATAACGTGAC and GCTGCATGAATAACGTGACT (5' guide RNA pair) and TCATAAACCTATGCAGCGTG and CTGTCATCCACACGCTGCAT (3' guide RNAs pair). Both 4 guides were electroporated as RNPs (crRNA/tracRNA and Cas9 protein). Putative founders and F1 pups were characterized by PCR using the following primer: GGGATACTTTTGCTGATGAGTAGAGGAG and CCAAAGAACACTGGAGGGACCTATC.

Requesting frozen sperm or embryos is generally advisable wherever possible, in order to minimise the shipment of live mice.

  • Frozen embryos. Delivered in 4 weeks (after paperwork in place). €1740*
  • Rederivation of mice from frozen stock, delivery time available upon request . €3880*

Due to the dynamic nature of our processes strain availability may change at short notice. The local repository manager will advise you in these circumstances.

* In addition users have to cover all the shipping costs (including the cost for returning dry-shippers, where applicable), as well as a CRISPR surcharge.
