Model Submission Date2016-04-28
Model TypeGEMM
Model Name MMTV-PyMT (BL6)
JAX Number 022974
DescriptionThese transgenic mice have the polyoma virus middle T antigen (PyVT) under control of the mouse mammary tumour virus (MMTV) promoter/enhancer. Females develop mammary tumours which often (strain dependent) metastasize to the lungs. Males develop mammary tumours with longer latency. Tumour-bearing females have reduced lung metastasis compared to FVB.
