IMPORTANT NOTE:
  1. AGI codes are frequently changed. Before you make your order, we recommend you to obtain detail information including flanking sequence of the line from RARGE (Riken Arabidopsis Genome Encyclopedia) or T-DNA express.
  2. The lines marked ‘In preparation’ are currently unavailable. Do not include those lines in your order. We will make an announcement at the time they are ready for distribution.
  3. The transposon-tagged lines are categorized to genetically modified organisms. For ordering such materials, the applicants must obtain all of the permission required by any kind of regulation or law before ordering. Also, it is recipient’s responsibility to perform customs procedure for importation of biological materials. Please inform us when you need quarantine certification to import Arabidopsis seeds. Without providing such information, RIKEN BRC cannot guarantee any loss or damage of the materials that is caused during customs procedure.
  4. Genotypes of two Ds donor lines, namely Ds2-389-2 and Ds6-393-19, were inconsistent with that of Nossen. None of the natural accessions preserved in RIKEN BRC has same genotype with these lines. (These lines were crossed with Ac donor line to produce Ds12- and Ds16- lines.) We recommend users to use the parental lines available from ABRC as control plants in your experiments. List of parental line is here. RIKEN BRC also provides the lines upon your request.
NOTE: Only those lines listed on our catalogue are available. Other lines will be open for distribution after multiplication in RIKEN BRC. For detail, please send your question to:plant@brc.riken.jp
