BRC No.RBRC01342
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameEmx1-Cre Tg1
Former Common nameEmx1-Cre Tg1
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Takuji Iwasato and Shigeyoshi Itohara, RIKEN Brain Science Institute. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of C57BL/6 fertilized eggs. C57BL/6 background.
Strain descriptionEmx1-Cre transgenitc mice, containing a transcriptional unit of a dorsal telencephalon specific promoter (Emx1 promoter) and Cre recombinase gene. Line 1 (RBRC01342), Line 2 (RBRC01343) and Line 3 (RBRC01344). The most suitable cre driver strain is Emx1-cre delta neo knock-in mice (RBRC01345) (no ectopic cre expression is detected).
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6JJcl]
