In 2007, the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC) made the ambitious promise to generate mutations in virtually every protein-coding gene of the mouse genome in a concerted worldwide action. Now, 5 years later, the IKMC members have developed high-throughput gene trapping and, in particular, gene-targeting pipelines and generated more than 17,400(More)
The transcription factors CREM, CREB, and ATF-1 constitute a subfamily of beta-Zip transcription factors. Several different kinase cascades regulate the activity of these proteins. The activator splice-isoform CREMtau is specifically and highly expressed in post-meiotic germ cells during mouse spermatogenesis. Male mice lacking CREMtau expression are(More)
Because the mouse is used so widely for biomedical research and the number of mouse models being generated is increasing rapidly, centralized repositories are essential if the valuable mouse strains and models that have been developed are to be securely preserved and fully exploited. Ensuring the ongoing availability of these mouse strains preserves the(More)
