Description

The Apoa4 KO rat was developed using targeted TALEN technology in the Sprague-Dawley strain. This model possesses an 8 bp deletion within Exon 2 on chromosome 8 causing a protein frame shift. This strain was maintained by mating homozygous males with homozygous females on a Sprague-Dawley genetic background.
