Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC01456
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.B6D2-Tg(Neurog3-cre)24Syos
Former Common namengn3/Cre transgenic mouse, ngn3/Cre Tg#24
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6NCrSlc
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Shosei Yoshida, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University in 2001. The ngn3-Cre transgene containing a 23-kb genomic region of the mouse ngn3 locus and cre recombinase gene was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F1 fertilized eggs. The transgenic mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6.
Strain descriptionThese transgenic mice express a cre recombinase gene under the control of the mouse Neurogenin 3 gene promoter. This can be used to make an conditional knock-out by crossing with the other genetically-engineered mice that have floxed genes. The expression of cre recombinase was observed in positive spermatogonia, pancreatic/enteric endocrine precursors.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6NCrSlc]. Tg mice are viable and fertile.
