  • Tool name: CDR KO Mouse
  • Research fields: Cancer;Immunology
  • Tool sub type: Mouse
  • Disease: Chronic Lymphoblastic Leukemia
  • Model: Conditional KO
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Conditional description: Conditional Knockout mouse of the entire chromosomal region m14qC3/h13q14 upon recombination by Cre-recombinase
  • Description: Deletion of chrosomal region 13q14 represents the most comon genetic abberation in B-Cell chronic lymphoma. Deletion of human chromosomal region 13q14 (mouse 14qC3) represents the most common genetic aberration in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), a neoplasm of mature B lymphocytes. 13q14 deletions are commonly large and heterogeneous in size and affect multiple genes. Contained within the 13q14 region is the 0.69 megabase-large genomic region telomeric to the MDR called the common deleted region (CDR). The CDR encompasses the DLUE2 gene, miR-15a/16-1 cluster, DLEU1 gene, DLEU7 gene and RNASEH2B gene. Deletion of the CDR in this model organism recapitulates the full spectrum of CLL-associated lymphoproliferations in humans. Knockout of the CDR allele was induced in B-cells by crossing with CD19-Cre mice.
  • Genetic background: The 2 targeting vectors used to flank the CDR with loxP and frt sites were derivatives of pEmod227 containing either a phosphoglycerate kinase (PK)neomycin-resistance (5'tag) or a PK-hygromycin-resistance (3'tag) poly(A) cassette, the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase gene (both tags), a loxP and a frt site (both tags), a promoterless gene encoding enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP) and immediately preceding a triple simian virus 40 poly(A) site in 5'tag, a PK promoter (3'tag), and multiple unique restriction sites for cloning 14qC3 segments corresponding to the homology arms. Successively inserted into the cloning sites of the corresponding 5'tag and 3'tag vectors were 2 DNA fragments of the 129/Sv-14qC3 locus. The linearized 5'tag vector was electroporated into W9.5 embryonic stem (ES) cells derived from 129/SvEvTac. Correctly targeted ES cell were then electroporated with the linearized 3'tag vector. Chimeras were obtained after injection of the targeted ES clones into blastocysts derived from C57BL/6 mice. From the chimeras, mice were obtained with the loxP-flanked CDR allele in germline CDRfl/+, as determined by Southern blot analysis.
  • Zygosity: Homozygous
  • Strain: C57BL/6
  • Production details: The 2 targeting vectors used to flank the CDR with loxP and frt sites were derivatives of pEmod227 containing either a phosphoglycerate kinase (PK)– neomycin-resistance (5′tag) or a PK-hygromycin-resistance (3′tag) poly(A) cassette, the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase gene (both tags), a loxP and a frt site (both tags), a promoterless gene encoding enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP) and immediately preceding a triple simian virus 40 poly(A) site in 5′tag, a PK promoter (3′tag), and multiple unique restriction sites for cloning 14qC3 segments corresponding to the homology arms.
