ES Cell line
Background strain
Appearanceblack [a/a b/b C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Masaru Okabe, Research Institute for Microbial Diseases, Osaka University. This transgenic line was generated by coinjected with act-EGFP and acr-EGFP transgene constructs into fertilized eggs. The mice were crossed to C57BL/6.
Strain descriptionTransgenic mice expressing GFP ubiquitously from CAG-EGFP and in the sperm acrosome from acr3-EGFP. GFP expression is detected in germline cells at early stage (8 cells). Acr3-EGFP, in which EGFP with a proacrosin signal peptide and proacrosin N-terminal peptide were connected to the acrosin promoter. CAG-EGFP, in which EGFP is connected to the cytomegalovirus immediate early enhancer/beta-actin promoter (CAG). The transgene is located in chromosome X by FISH.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6NJcl]
