The objective of this core is to facilitate the use of mouse models to study Polycystic Kidney Disease.
Charge-back (non-profit) ($125 per animal)
- Pkd1 and Pkd2 Knock out alleles in a BL/6 background(1-3).
- Pkd1v/v (knock in GPS cleavage mutant) in a BL/6 background(4).
- Pkhd1del3-4 in a BL/6 background(5).
- Pkhd1^67 in a BL/6 background (6).
- Pkhd1HA endogenously tagged in the C-terminal region in a BL/6 background (6).
