Embryonic stem cell technology revolutionized biology by providing a means to assess mammalian gene function in vivo. Although it is now routine to generate mice from embryonic stem cells, one of the principal methods used to create mutations, gene targeting, is a cumbersome process. Here we describe the indexing of 93,960 ready-made insertional targeting(More)
The FVB/NJ mouse strain has its origins in a colony of outbred Swiss mice established in 1935 at the National Institutes of Health. Mice derived from this source were selectively bred for sensitivity to histamine diphosphate and the B strain of Friend leukemia virus. This led to the establishment of the FVB/N inbred strain, which was subsequently imported(More)
PURPOSE The immunoglobulin superfamily member Cadm1 is a single-pass, type 1 membrane protein that mediates calcium-independent, cell-cell adhesion. Cadm1 has been implicated in tumor formation and synaptogenesis. A recent analysis of mouse lens cell membranes identified Cadm1 as a major constituent of the fiber cell membrane proteome. Here the authors(More)
Cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) tax requires CADM1/TSLC1 for inactivation of the NF-κB inhibitor A20 and constitutive NF-κB signaling. ☯ These authors contributed equally to this work. Abstract Persistent activation of NF-κB by the Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) oncopro-tein, Tax, is vital for the development and pathogenesis of adult(More)
The evolutionarily conserved SLX4 protein, a key regulator of nucleases, is critical for the DNA damage response. SLX4 nuclease complexes mediate repair during replication and can also resolve Holliday junctions formed during homologous recombination. Here we describe the phenotype of the Btbd12 knockout mouse, the murine orthologue of SLX4, which(More)
