Model TypeGEMM
Model Name Blg-Cre_B-catenin
JAX Number -
DescriptionTo understand the role of stabilized beta-catenin in tumorigenesis in mice, a PGK-neomycin resistance cassette introduced two loxP sites flanking exon 3 and the inserted cassette. When the germline heterozygotes were crossed with mice expressing Cre recombinase under the control of a sheep beta-lactoglobulin promoter (LGB) in the mammary, the serines and threonine encoded by exon 3 and to be phosphorylated by glycogen synthase kinase 3beta (GSK3beta).
