Description of our model

This strain was developed by crossing a C57BL/6NRj with a BALB/cAnNRj and the B6cF1 was backcrossed over 10 generations with a C57BL/6NRj genetic background. The result: an inbred mouse with a C57BL/6NRj genetic background carrying the albino mutation.

The B6(C)/Rj-Tyrc/c, therefore, has absolutely no pigments (skin, eyes). This strain also possesses characteristics similar to a C57BL/6NRj, but does not carry the Nnt gene mutation, unlike the C57BL/6JRj.

The B6(C)/Rj-Tyrc/c is mainly used in transgenics for the creation of blastocysts intended for the reception of genetically modified ES cells by way of microinjection on a C57BL/6 genetic background.

This strain can also be used in immunology research, such as C57BL/6. It is, in this case, used in the production of embryo kits, from zygotes to blastocyst stage.

Our added value

  • The « JANVIER LABS Genetic Policy », a specific programme, guarantees homozygosity of autosomal pairs.
  • Animals with the SPF or SOPF standards.
  • A gentling policy for docile and easy-to-handle animals.
  • Optimal stability conditions of our models during shipments, thanks to our dedicated and internal transport service.
  • A scientific support with a team of Veterinarians and PhD.
