SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC57BL/6-Tg(MSCV-EGFP)1Hirai
Former Common nameB6-Tg(MSCV-GFP), B6-MSCV-GFP Tg
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Hirokazu Hirai, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine in 2008. Lentiviral vectors were used to introduce a MSCV-EGFP cassette into the genomes of C57BL/6J mouse embryos.
Strain descriptionMSCV-GFP transgenic mice EXPRESSING a EGFP under the control of the Murine stem cell virus (MSCV) promoter. In the brain, Tg expression is detected in the Purkinje cells and in the brainstem, especially in the pontine nuclei. Tg expression is also detected in several tissues, especially in the thymus, leucocytes, muscle and skin.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6JJmsSlc]
