Strain description

Rgs16 knockdown mouse line#53 decreases expression of Rgs16, which is a member of regulators of G protein Signaling (RGS) family. This mouse is transgenic mouse generated to use lentiviral vector expressing Rgs16 mRNA targeted shRNA. This strain shows to change the cycle of locomotor activity rhythms and reduce total activity level, furthermore reduce food anticipatory activity (FAA) in the scheduled feeding. It's considered that this strain is useful model of anomaly of circadian locomotor rhythms. Gene background is C57BL/6JJcl.
