Animal Health Report
Strain description

KLF15/B mice are transgenic mice specifically overexpressing transcription factor KLF15 (Kruppel-like factor 15) in skeletal muscle. This strain expresses full-length cDNA encoding mouse KLF15 under the control of human α actin promoter on -2,000 bp. This strain doesn't show specific phenotype, but it's suggested that KLF15 may increase GLUT4 expression level. Thus, it's considered that this strain is available for research of lifestyle disease such as diabetes. This strain has two lines.
