Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC02188
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC57BL/6Cr-Tg(tetO-APTTC)1Yoko
Former Common nameB6.tetO-APTTC,C57BL/6
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6NCrSlc
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Mineto Yokoi, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine in 2004. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of C57BL/6CrSlc fertilized eggs.
Strain descriptionThis transgenic mice express a fusion gene, APTTC, consisting of the truncated human placental alkaline phosphatase with TTC (Tetanus toxin C fragment). This strain can be used to make an inducible expression of APTTC as a retrograde transynaptic genetic tracer corssing with the genetically-engineered mice that have a tetracycline-controlled transactivator (tTA) in any specific neurons.
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6CrSlc]Tg/+ hemizygous mice are viable and fertile.
