Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC09645
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6-Tg(Slc32a1-YFP*)39Yyan
Former Common name
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Strain developmentDeveloped by Yuchio Yanagawa, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine. A BAC DNA construct was injected to fertilized eggs derived from C57BL/6. Mice were maintained in this genetic background.
Strain descriptionBAC transgenic mice expressing Venus under the control of Slc32a1 (VGAT) promoter. Venus expression is sufficiently bright to visualize inhibitory neurons.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [or C57BL/6JJcl]
