Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Takahisa Furukawa, Osaka Bioscience Institute in 2008. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of B6C3F1 fertilized eggs.
Strain descriptionCrx-creERT2 transgenic mice. This transgenic mouse expresses tamoxifen-inducible cre recombinase gene in retinal photoreceptor cells and progenitor cells under the control of the mouse Crx promoter.
