Strain development Deposited by Dr. Katsuhiko Mikoshiba, Brain Science Institute, RIKEN.
Strain description The Cre-recombinase activity was detected specifically in the nuclear fraction of the cerebrum. The expression level of the cre gene in each line of Tg mice was following order; Line 10, 26>22, 17N, 11, 20. The expression of the cre was detected by RT-PCR (including semi-quantitative one), Western blotting and the Cre-recombinase activity assay. There are some variation in the amount of expression in the cerebrum and leaky expression (less than 1/10 to 1/100 of that in the cerebrum at maximum) in the cerebellum among the different lines.
Colony maintenance Sibling mating (Hemizygote x Wild-type)
Reproductive perdormance is good.
