Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC01459
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameFVB/N-Tg(P0-cre)1Gth/GvnRbrc
Former Common nameP0Cre-A
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainFVB/N
Appearancealbino [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Marco Giovannini at INSERM, France in 2000. P0Cre transgene fragment consisting of P1 Cre recomnbinase and 1.1 kb rat P0 promoter was injected into the pronuclei of FVB/N fertilized egges.
Strain descriptionFVB/N-Tg(P0-Cre)1Gth. P0Cre contains a transcriptional unit consisting of a Schwann cell specific promoter (myelin protein zero promoter) and Cre recombinase gene. This strain can be used to make a inducible knock-out by crossing with other conditional knock out mice that have floxed genes. P0Cre is a driver mouse that can remove floxed genes only in the myelin of the PNS.
