CommentMouse ES cell line derived from ZHTc6 and maintained by tetracycline(Tc)-regulatable Oct-3/4 transgene. Both of Oct-3/4 locus are disrupted by IRES-zeocin and IRES-BSD KO vectors. It should be cultured in the absence of tetraycline to maintain the undifferentiated state. See reference regarding more precise information.
