Hello Xenopus community, 
This email is to alert you to the fact that we have successfully raised J line frogs to sexual maturity in the NXR and they are now available for sale. We have performed in vitro fertilizations with these frogs and find no difference between them and 'traditional' Xenopus laevis. For those interested, the J line frog is the inbred strain of Xenopus laevis whose genome is currently being sequenced. 

This strain would make an excellent addition to your frog colony and might help alleviate some of the problems from morpholinos not working because of sequence variations in 'traditional' Xenopus laevis animals. 

The cost is $50 each or if you purchase 20 or more then the cost is $40 each. Shipping and handling is a separate fee and will vary based on your location. 

Should you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us.
