EPO-Tg (SV40T/Epo) 134.3LCPjr Mouse Model

Strain: EpoTg (SV40T/Epo) 134.3LCPjr,

Gene: Epo,

Background: (C57BL/10 x CBA)F1 X CFLP

This mouse incorporates a transgene containing the wild-type allele of the SV40 large T antigen (TAg) gene fused to the mouse Epo gene isolated from a BALB/c library. In this founder line, a single copy of the transgene replaced one copy of the endogenous Epo gene. This recombination event was confirmed by restriction digest mapping and Southern blotting. Sv40 T antigen was detected in the interstitial cells of the kidney. Epo transgene expression in the kidney is reduced compared to endogenous Epo gene expression as determined by RNAse protection assay.

The University’s policy is to minimise the use of animals in research, consistent with the need to make significant advances on important problems of human health. Where animal research is necessary, the University will provide housing and care that exceeds, wherever possible, legal requirements. The University will also continually pursue techniques that reduce the number of animals involved in research. For further information about animal research at Oxford, click here.
