Insertion of a neomycin resistance cassette into exon 4. The
authors predict that the targeted allele would encode a
truncated non-functional protein that will not bind LDL, and
that lacks a membrane spanning segment. Immunoblot analysis
of liver membranes detected a truncated protein in
homozygous mutant animals.
Mice homozygous for the Ldlrtm1Her mutation have an elevated
serum cholesterol level of 200-400 mg/dl and they have very
high levels (>2,000 mg/dl) when fed a high fat diet. Normal
serum cholesterol in the mouse is 80-100 mg/dl.
The Ldlrtm1Her mutant strain was developed in the laboratory
of Dr. Robert Hammer and Dr. Joachim Herz at the Howard
Hughes Medical Institute Research Laboratories, University
of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. The
129-derived AB1 ES cell line was used. C57BL/6J mice were
generated by crossing the Ldlrtm1Her mutation 5 or more
times to C57BL/6J mice.

MMPC clients make their data freely available whereby MMPC users may freely build upon, enhance and reuse those data for any purpose without restriction.

Please note that the acknowledgment text includes a Research Resource Identifier (RRID) for the MMPC CU and Centers. Reproducibility is one of the corner stones of effective, open and transparent biomedical published research. However, too often, resources (e.g. model organisms, antibodies, and tools) are not reported with adequate detail to ensure others can replicate or expand upon the published results. The Research Resource Identification Initiative (#RII) seeks to change these limitations in reporting by the use of unique Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs). This initiative is designed to encourage authors to provide identification of the types of resources used in their research by adding a globally unique accession number to the resources described in the their manuscripts. These identifiers, called RRIDs, will allow authors to cite the resources that they use in their manuscripts. RRIDs allow for easy tracking of all papers that have used the same resource making it easy to access how the same resources works in other scenarios.
It is expected that MMPC users follow scholarly citation norms, giving credit to fellow scholars when accessing/using protocols and data, including data derived by MMPC (such as summary data) and any plots, tables or screenshots depicting those data.
It is possible for invalid or incomplete results to be presented on the MMPC web site due to software bugs, data problems, or artifacts of human error. Data sets are not necessarily static; we reserve the right to post corrections and updates as needed.
Data contributors and data users may not use MMPC in any unlawful manner, or in any manner that could impair MMPC services, security or functionality. Automated usage (webcrawlers and similar) must observe each page's "meta robots" html tags and space requests by ≥ 2 seconds.
