Mouse Strains Newly Available from the MMRRC

Dear Researchers, The Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Centers (MMRRC) distributes and cryopreserves scientifically valuable, genetically engineered mouse strains and mouse ES cell lines with potential value for the genetics and biomedical research community. The MMRRC is a single repository with a national network of four breeding and distribution facilities coordinated by an information and service center. The MMRRC is supported by the National Institutes of Health.

Now available for Distribution: 59 mouse models are newly available from the MMRRC repository. Strain Detail Sheets for each of these strains can be accessed through the stock numbers below.

The Repository\’s newest additions: 27 strains have recently been accepted and will be available through the MMRRC. If you register interest, we will notify you when the strain is available; you will then have the opportunity to place an order. The average wait time for a newly accepted strain to become available for distribution is seven months from time MMRRC receives it from the donor.
To register interest, find the MMRRC product in the catalog listing, then click on the star icon in the left hand column.
