Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Takahisa Furukawa, Institute for Protein Research, Osaka Bioscience Institute in 2012. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of B6C3F1 fertilized eggs. The mice were crossed to C57BL/6.
Strain descriptionmGluR6-cre transgenic mice in which cre recombinase is specifically expressed in retinal ON-type bipolar cells under the control of the upstream 9.5 kb region of mGluR6.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6NCrlCrlj]
