Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC10241
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameB6-Tg(Scn1a-GFP)1Kzy
Former Common name
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strain
Strain developmentDeveloped by Ikuo Ogiwara and Kazuhiro Yamakawa, RIKEN BSI in 2008. In the BAC clone (RP23-232A20), GFP was placed at the translation initiation codon at the Exon 1 of the Scn1a gene. Then the BAC DNA construct was injected to the fertilized eggs of C57BL/6J. C57BL/6 genetic background.
Strain descriptionTransgenic mice expressing GFP underthe control of the Scn1a (sodium channel, voltage-gated, type I, alpha) gene promoter. Both males and females are fertile.
