BRC No.RBRC05454
TypeTargeted MutationCartagena
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6;129B6(Cg)-Actb<tm1(tetO-ChR2*C128S/EYFP)Kftnk>
Former Common nametetO-ChR2 KI, B6-tetO-ChR2/YFP KI
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell lineEGR-G01 [129S2 x C57BL/6NCr-Tg(CAG/Acr-EGFP)]
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Kenji Tanaka and Akihiro Yamanaka, National Institute for Physiological Sciences. (C57BL/6 x 129) F1 ES cells were used. FRT-flanked neo selection cassette was removed by crossing with ROSA-Flpe mice. C57BL/6 and 129 mixed background.
Strain descriptionThe tetO-ChR2 (C128S) cassette was inserted just downstream of the polyadenylation signal of Actb gene. Homozygous mutant mice are embryonic lethal.
Colony maintenanceHeterozygote x Wild-type [C57BL/6JJcl]
