BRC No.RBRC04335
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6;B6C3-Tg(Thy1-ChR2/mCherry)9-7Sasa/Rbrc
Former Common name
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by National Institute for Basic Biology and RIKEN BioResource Center in 2010.
Strain descriptionOptogenetic transgenic mice. A transgenic construct containing ChR2 (channelrhodopsin-2)-mCherry fusion cDNA under the control of the rat thymus cell antigen, theta promoter was microinjected into B6C3F1 fertilized eggs. Expression of ChR2/mCherry has not been examined yet. Users are encouraged to test the expression pattern and feed back the data for the research community.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6NJcl]. Hemizygous Tg mice are viable and fertile (viability and fertility of homozygotes are unknown).
