  mDomino KO Mouse :
    An essential molecule for embryonic hematopoiesis

    Depositor: Dr. Rikiro Fukunaga (Kyoto University)

    BRC No. RBRC01774   mDomino knockout mouse

    The SWI2/SNF2 family protein, p400/mDomino (mammalian Domino), is an
    Swr1-class DNA-dependent ATPase that is a core subunit of a large
    chromatin-remodeling complex. The mDomino-mutated mice are embryonic
    lethal by day 11.5 (E11.5), and show a defect in embryonic
    hematopoiesis.

|  Newly deposited mouse strains
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  These mice have been newly deposited to RIKEN BRC. They will be
available soon after rederivation. We appreciate depositors for their
contributions to the scientific community.

|  Newly available mouse strains
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  These mice just have been rederived into our barrier facility.
These mice are now available for distribution.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
|  Mouse strains for freeze preservation
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Since enough number of embryos has been preserved, live mice of these
strains will be closed soon. It will take more than 3 months to recover
live mice from frozen stock. Please let us know as soon as possible, if
you plan to use the mice and request them alive.
