Strain Information

BRC No.RBRC00906
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC57BL/6-Tg(pLck-EGFP)1Naka/Rbrc
Former Common nameplck-GFP Tg
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Appearanceblack [(a/a B/B C/C)]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Toshinori Nakayama, Graduate School of Medicine, Chiba University in 2001. The 4.2 kb pLck-EGFP plasmid was purified and injected into the pronucleous of C57BL/6J fertilized eggs. Transgenic mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6 for 4 times.
Strain descriptionC57BL/6-Tg(pLck-EGFP)1Naka. The plck-GFP transgenic mice carry EGFP (enhanced green fluorescence protein) cDNA under control of the proximal promoter of Lck (lymphocyte protein tryosine kinase). The Lck proximal promoter is reported to be most active in immature thymocytes. These transgenic mice are powerful tools for the visualization of the intracellular machinery that is crucial for the development of lymphocytes.
Colony maintenanceBackcross to C57BL/6J (Hemizygote x C57BL/6JJcl).Reproductive performance is good.
