Strain nameSTOCK Tg(tetO-OPN4,mCherry)M5
Former Common nameBitetO-OPN4/mCherry
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Tomomi Tsunematsu, Kenji F. Tanaka Akihiro Yamanaka and Amane Koizumi, National Institute for Physiological Sciences in 2012. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of CBA/C57BL/6 fertilized eggs. Mixed genetic background.
Strain descriptionBitetO-OPN4/mCherry transgenic mice. These transgenic mice express human OPN4 and mCherry genes under the control of the bi-directional tet-responsive element.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Carrier [or Crossing to C57BL/6JJcl]
