Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC06579
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC57BL/6J-Tg(Thy1-G-CaMP7,-DsRed2)492Bsi
Former Common nameThy1-G-CaMP7 Tg, B6-Thy1-GCMP7/DsRed, Tg#492
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Masamichi Ohkura and Junichi Nakai, Saitama University, Masaaki Sato and Yasunori Hayashi, RIKEN Brain Institute in 2011. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of C57BL/6J fertilized eggs.
Strain descriptionThy1-G-CaMP7/DsRed2 transgenic mice. These transgenic mice express G-CAMP7 and DsRed2 under the control of the Thy1 promoter.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [or Crossing to C57BL/6JJmsSlc]
