Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC05426
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain name129.B6C3-Tg(Crx-cre)1Tfur
Former Common name129-Crx-cre Tg
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Takahisa Furukawa, Osaka Bioscience Institute in 2003. The transgene was injected into the B6C3F1 fertilized eggs. The transgenic mice were backcrossed to 126S6 mice over 6 generations.
Strain descriptionThis transgenic mouse expresses Cre recombinase gene in retinal photoreceptor cells and progenitor cells under the control of the 12-kb mouse Crx promoter.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [or Crossing to 129S6/SvEvTac]
