Mouse embryonic-stem cells

There are many mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells commonly used and available. Most of them are derived from any of the 129 mouse sub-strains. If you would like to know the mouse strain of origin of the mouse ES cell you are using you can browse the document released by The Jackson Lab a few years ago (1999, 2001) on “New 129 nomenclature – revised” or, better, download the entire list of available mouse ES cells according to their common name and mouse strain of origin, prepared and served from the Mouse Genome Informatics ftp WEB server.
