Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC06155
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC.Cg-Tg(CAG-Cre)CZ-M02Osb
Former Common nameCAG-Cre, BALB-CAGCre Tg#2
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainBALB/cAJcl
Strain developmentDeveloped by Shuhei Sakakibara and Teruhito Yasui, Research Institute for Microbial Diseases, Osaka University. Generated by backcrossing to BALB/cAJcl from B6.Cg-Tg(CAG-Cre)CZ-M02Osb (RBRC01828) over 11 times.
Strain descriptionThese transgenic mice express Cre recombinase gene under the control of CAG promoter. This strain can be used to make an inducible knock-out by crossing with the other genetically-engineered mice that have a loxP site-flanked sequence of interest. The recombination occurs in all over the body. BALB/c background.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [BALB/cAJcl]
