Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC05738
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6.Cg-c/c Tg(CAG-tdKaede)15Utr
Former Common nameWK-m15(Tyrc-2J)
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Yoshihiro Miwa, Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences, University of Tsukuba in 2007. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F1 fertilized eggs. The Kaede cDNA was provided by Dr. Atsushi Miyawaki, RIKEN Brain Science Institute. C57BL/6 background (RBRC05737), albino C57BL/6 background (RBRC05738).
Strain descriptionThese transgenic mice expressing a Kaede, photoconvertible fluorescence protein under the control of the CAG promoter. The expression of green fluoresce of Kaede mice can be converted to red on irradiation with UV or violet light.
