Ordering name: 129+Ter/SvJcl
Availability: Live colony
This strain was derived from 129/terSv, established by Stevens in 1973 as an inbred strain that develops congenital testicular teratoma at a high frequency. Later in 1985, Dr. Motoko Noguchi at Shizuoka University discovered the recessive gene ter (teratoma) that causes a reproductive cell defect. Wild-type mice of this strain were introduced to CLEA Japan Inc. through Shizuoka University and the University of Tokyo (+Ter in the notation of the strain denotes the genotype +/+).
These mice are mainly used for the production of ES cells for gene targeting.
