Target Details

  • Target: OGG1

Application Details

  • Application notes: Primary mouse embryo fibroblast (MEF) cultures from Ogg1 mutant mice were established by standard procedures from individual embryonic day 13.5 (E13.5) embryos derived from heterozygous matings. Cells were cultured in DMEM/Hams F-12 (3:1) with 10% FBS and genotyped by Southern hybridization, and permanent cell lines were established from transformed clones arising spontaneously after repeated passage in culture.
