Animal Distribution Policies
Animal models generated by the ParaBioSys PGA investigators
are available upon request from the investigator.
In some circumstances,
the animals will have been deposited with the Jackson Laboratories mutant
mouse repository or with the NCRR mouse repository, in which case the
requesting investigator will be referred to those facilities to obtain
the mice. Where possible, male homozygotes or homozygous breeding pairs
are supplied for transgenic lines, and appropriate breeding pairs for
knockout lines. We also have provided frozen embryos to institutions that
prefer this method of shipment.
Mouse availability is dependent on continued
maintenance of the mutant mouse strain in the original investigator's
laboratory. Thus, older mouse models may not be available.
Fees for shipping and handling will be charged to the requesting lab.
