Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Drs. Michihiko Sugimoto and Kuniya Abe, RIKEN BioResource Center in 2005.
Strain descriptionThis transgenic mouse expresses RFP under the control of Blimp1 promoter. Expression intensity display high in line 1 (RBRC01830), weak in line 2 (RBRC01831), line 3 (RBRC01832) and line 4 (RBRC01833) (expression of line 4 is higher than line 2 and 3). Tg Homozygous mice of line 1 are embryonic lethal.
