BRC No.RBRC02182
TypeTransgene CongenicCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.Cg-Tg(Prm1-Cre)01Osb
Former Common nameprotamine-cre
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Masato Ikawa at Osaka University in 1997.
Strain descriptionThis transgenic mouse expresses the cre-recombinase under the control of the protamine 1 gene promoter. This strain can be used to make an inducible knock-out by crossing with the other genetically-engineered mice that have floxed genes.
Colony maintenanceBackcross to C57BL/6 (Hemizygote x C57BL6/CrSlc)
