Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC09257
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC.Cg-Tg(CAG-tdKaede)15Utr
Former Common nameKaede (WK-m15), BALB-CAG-Kaede Tg#15
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Michio Tomura, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine and Yoshihiro Miwa, Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences, University of Tsukuba. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F1 fertilized eggs. The Kaede cDNA was provided by Atsushi Miyawaki, RIKEN Brain Science Institute. The Tg mice were backcrossed to BALB/c over 22 times.
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.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [BALB/cAJcl]
