Strain Data Sheet



BRC No.RBRC02340
SpeciesMus musculus
Strain nameC57BL/6-Tg(bitetO-GFP)BYoko
Former Common namebitetO-GFP
H-2 Haplotype
ES Cell line
Background strainC57BL/6JJcl
Appearanceblack [a/a B/B C/C]
Strain developmentDeveloped by Dr. Mineto Yokoi, Columbia University in 2002. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of C57BL/6 fertilized eggs.
Strain descriptionThis transgenic mice express a bitetO-GFP contained the bidirectional tetracycline operator (tetO) promoter driving EGFP and a rabbit beta-globin intron/polyA signal in one direction, and in the opposite direction, driving an artifical intron, an artificial fusion gene consisting of a placental alkaline phosphatase fragment, tetanus toxin C fragment, tyrosine phosphatase delta fragment, and glutamate receptor 2 fragment (RT8) and an SV40 polyadenylation signal. This strain can be used to make an inducible expression of EGFP crossing with the genetically-engineered mice that have a tetracycline-controlled transactivator (tTA).
Colony maintenanceCarrier x Noncarrier [C57BL/6JJcl]Tg/+ hemizygous mice are viable and fertile.
