BRC No.RBRC02141
TypeTransgene CongenicCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.Cg-Tg(DBH-tauGFP)36
Former Common nameB6.Cg-(DBH-tauGFP)36
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Strain developmentDeveloped by Kazuto Kobayashi, Fukushima Medical University School of Medicine in 1998. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F2 fertilized eggs. The Tg mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J over 20 times. Line 17 (RBRC02140), line 36 (RBRC02141).
Strain descriptionThese transgenic mice express a fusion gene of bovine tau protein and GFP under the control of the human DBH promoter in typical noradrenergic and adrenergic cell groups. Line 17 and 36 were generated. The expression level of Tg in each line was following order: 17 > 36 (developer’s information).
