  • Description: The LF2 mouse embryonic stem cell line is a germ-line competent embryonic stem cell line that inactivates one of its X chromosomes upon retinoic acid treatment. Embryonic stem cells provide a powerful system for the experimental analysis of mammalian development. Their genetic manipulation allows the introduction of defined modifications into the mouse germ-line, whilst in culture they constitute both an assay system for, and a potential source of, embryonic regulatory factors.
